What hp/tq is considered a quick truck and "fun"?

I realize that 7.3's (as is the case with any diesel) are not made for 0-60 or 1/4 time slips, but from a roll and even launching hard w/ boosted 4x4 runs you can pull some good times down.

What hp/tq do you consider a super duty (not talking about an OBS, since they are a different animal) quick?

Super Duty's are heavier than OBS trucks, but have better fueling, hpop, trannies etc than OBS trucks. So what hp/tq is considered quick?

Drive stock for a week, then load the tunes back up. Then you'll realize how fast it is

I'm basically just trying to find out what the board thinks a "fun" 7.3 is that will **** n git. 400hp would make for a fun truck, for sure.

With the mods in my sig, and my chip set to 120 race, I pulled a 16.2 in the 1/4 launching off 9 psi in 4x4. Fast by any means? Not really, but I think it's good for a 7.3 and such a heavy truck. I was definitely put back in my seat. I don't know what i'm making numbers wise, but it'll be going on the dyno soon. Then comes turbo and injectors.

^Like I said, these trucks aren't 1/4 rapers, but once the mass is already in motion they can rip along quite nicely. For ONLY a chip and some VERY basic mods, thats a decent 1/4 time

From dead stop no boosting or 4x4 I could do a 1/4 in just a hair over 16 seconds. Only tunes I got is an old edge evo. Was running the Extreme tune of 140hp. Oh and I'd say if you can beat out a ricer with your truck it is pretty quick. Stupid honda civics anyway lol
