Haha, hes barely over 400!! Just ran one the other day (pretty much the same setup as you describe) with my 03 manual and Smarty on level 4 (90hp) and it was pretty close with me shifting...

575-now that there is FUNNY!!!

575 ponies with just a chip? Those Duracraps are fast, but I don't think JUST a chip will give him that.

Maybe 575# torque, but I doubt 575 hp

Of course he could be like me...Whenever people ask me what kinda tuner I got on my truck, I look around in my seat and under my dash and say "What tuner?" followed by a funny look
