7.3 VS. 6.0

here is a question that i would like to have some input on.

who would win a 1/4 mile race:

1. a 7.3 with 4" exhaust, intake, and custom tuned (like dp or tw).
2. a 6.0 with 4" exhaust, intake, with canned tunes (like predator or hypertech).

I drive both trucks in my sig nearly everyday and without a doubt the 6.0 would kill my truck. I never give her the chance to get next to me at a light since I know what her truck can do to mine.

Not sure what this guy's 6.0 had for a chip, but at the track I was running the exact same times as him. I know he had an intake and exhaust and it smoked quite a bit. I'm guessing it was a superchip or similar.

I was curious because there was a dually that i ran light to light and we were neck and neck. he said he had a superchips on the highest setting and i was on my dp 140. i didnt ask him about the intake or exhaust but i could hear that he had it. he did have big wheels and tires. would 22.5 inch wheels make a big difference? would he have creamed me if he was on stocks?
