Random "fun"question

With out going into the very Pricey mods(High flow HPOP, and Injector upgrades). Lets say you have a stock 7.3 truck. Then you add:

Billet compressor wheel
High flow air filter
6POS tuner
FRx
4" exhaust

With this set up how do these trucks compare to some of the newer ones performance wise? like the 6.0 and 6.4 in stock form. Our trucks are the old dogs but i'm just wondering how they would stand up to the newer trucks with these few upgrades.

It would definitely wake the truck up, but it wouldn't hold a candle to the newer ones.

Not a chance in a race if both drivers know how to race. You could maybe keep up with a stock 6.0 if the moon is right.

Reliability is key, and basically the only key with a 7.3.

easily keep up with any 6.4 or 6.7 plus pretty much any performance base car like corvettes, camaros, lamborghinis etc.

My truck is pretty darn slow, but it'll keep up to a bone stock 6.4
I raced my buddy in his 08 before he did the deletes and I had about a fender on him.

weird to get 2 different answers. Reason I ask is because my last car was an older quick porsche. And believe it or not this truck has the same sort of pull, obviously not as must but for the weight it pulls strong. And i still have the stock exhaust and compressor wheel. And i still feel the truck pulls hard. Just had to ask

A tuned well running 7.3 will keep up with a stock 6.0, saying that they have the same gears and tire size. Well until the top end is there 2700+ rpm where then 7.3 falls on it's face compared to a 6.0 but 0-60 it will be neck and neck..

I will also say that I can keep up to a 6.4 if we take shifting out of it ( I'm stick so a fair bit slower)

From 70-140km/h I can stay right with my buddies stock 6.4 that's also on 37's. I won't go any faster than that because I need 2 lanes at that speed.

ive raced new 6.7's and stock duramax's and spanked them.

a billet compressor wheel really extends the rpm range, the truck pulls really hard from 70-100 mph.

I need to drive other peoples trucks some time.
Seems like I can beat everything off the line, but I have no top end.
I got beat by my brothers hemi ram again last week. And I always pull on him for the first two or three gears and then he passes me.
