7.3 vs 03 6.0

What will it take for the 2000 in my sig to beat a 03 6.0? I let a good budy of mine borrow my 00 while he installed new hg's in his blown 6.0 and turned it back to stock before he left. Today he says your truck is slow and builds very low boost. What do yall think?

The MTs don't help, and with just a chip plus basic supporting mods it may not take off till 2k+. But if you were to run your highest tune (assuming 140 race/extreme) and he his, you'd be left in the dust from a dig and a roll.

The OP already said he has tunes for the truck, so it'd be stupid not to run one. But stock to stock, the OP's 7.3 doesn't stand a chance if the 6.0 has the original EBP flash and the slightly hotter ficm tune that the 03's and 04's rolled with.

Forgot sorry he has the red superchips programmer and open exhaust.
He has 35/12.5/18's which slow him down and my 6.0, I don't think he would race, he knows I have better programing.

Just to beat a stock 6.0 you will need hybrids and a 38r

Did those 6.0's know you were racing them or was it a ricer flyby.

THere is no way a stage 1'd 7.3 beat even a crappily tuned 6.0
