HELP! Triton V10 is outpulling me

My dads truck is a Triton V10 of the same year as mine and it is out pulling me up grades with a 9000# trailer. I thought my truck was pretty powerful but now I am not so sure?

Even stock you have 75 lb ft on him. Start with the basics, check your filters, get a boost gauge and get a scanner to monitor ICP/IPR. Just realized you have 35's, what size tire is on the v10?

He is running stock tire size at this point. I have checked just about everything I know. He did just put an intake and exhaust on it but I dont know if that would make the difference. I just realized I said it was my dad, it is actually a coworker, I was just reading something about my dad at the time. My coworker said that he runs jet fuel in it because he knows a guy that works for the airport. Is the octane a lot higher in jet fuel or something?

You what he......you sure your co-worker isn't pulling your leg and is running a 7.3 too??? Either way with your mods that you have in your sig, you should be out pulling him like crazy.......and you found nothing wrong at all? Did you change all the filters anyway???

Your coworker probably meant AVGAS that is 100LL (Low Lead) octane. Besides powering Cessna's, 100LL is basically racing fuel used by go-karts, drag, motocross and ATV racers. I know a few guys who use the Jet A fuel sump samples but they mix it due to the fuel having less lubricity than DF2.
