Alright guys/gals - I need some help
I've already talked to my GPDA members about this, so I'll share with everyone else. A little backstory first though (ya know... to set the mood)
This race is between me and a co-worker of mine. There's a lot of emotion/drama riding on this race. Long story short, my job series is more of a female dominant series - while his is more of a male dominant series. I'm always taking little jabs at work such as "how do I like my female taskings" and such. Kinda pisses me off, but it's all in your attitude. I imagine it being similar to football players taunting guys that are on the cheerleading squad, or something to that effect. I want to destroy
this guy in a race.
The guy who's been talking some smack (all in good fun) about my truck, says stuff to the affect of "if I want to drive a real
truck - I should go for a ride in his Dodge SRT-10." Pretty sure it's a 2006. Pretty sure it's all stock. It's a quad cab. But most importantly.... it's a Dodge. So, I need to win this race - for the blue oval team.
Quick google searches show that his truck should be putting out 510hp and 525lbs/tq (at the crank
), however his quad cab only weighs in at 5600lbs and should run a 13.8 sec quarter mile (according to the net). Coworkers that work with this guy, all claim that it's "INCREDIBLY" fast. However, I'm not entirely sure if they're just trying to add to the hype or not.
My truck has intake, exhaust, FICM tune, and Matt's SRL+ tune. I mean, I've got other stuff done too (such as head studs, EGR delete, etc) but they don't add HP. My dyno numbers are in my sig. What are my chances of winning this thing?
We're going to set something up, and it will be video taped - in HD I might add. There are a lot
of people buzzing about our race in the office. He keeps chickening out whenever we get ready to "set a date", which gives me the impression that he isn't as confident as he appears to be - however when I read his truck's specs online... I don't know... it's gonna be close. I'm thinking that I run a 14 flat TOPS in the quarter.
A boosted launch is a given. What else should I look at? (tips for doing an awesome boosted launch are appreciated)
The longer this guy waits, the worse it's gonna be for him, cause I ain't slowin down. Future mods that I plan to get are a Water/Meth kit and a "special" turbo.
Turbo should be here soon, and I'll post new dyno numbers once I get them (dyno day on 21 April) - still keeping stock sticks for now.
