My truck is an 03 6.0L with a Powermax and 190s (mods in sig), but its never been on a dyno.
He, of course, made some cracks about towing me home when the 6.0 breaks lol so we agreed to a friendly race when he is back in town. He thinks I'd take him from a dig but that he'd pull away from a roll. What do you guys think?
I'll tell ya what. I met a guy at the local track w/ a "500hp common rail cummins", rolling coal all over the place, meaty tires etc... and a 6.0 w/ sct and injectors literally walked him like a lame dog.... and the 6.0 had VERY little smoke, stock exhaust, etc. If you look on diesel bombers I made a post about this last summer
Just replace the **** with diesel bombers.

This is true. Put it into a lower gear to hold the rpms if your gonna race from a roll. Then drop it back into drive.
