5.7 hemi 2500 vs 7.3 250

So heres the thing my dad has a 2008 dodge ram 2500 crew cab short bed with the 5.7 hemi no mods. I have a 2001 F250 ext cab short bed 7.3 no mods. He keeps smack talking my truck whats the chance i could smoke him or at least beat him

also his girlfriends son has a Dodge ram 1500 reg cab short bed with a 5.7 and wants to hook up to everybody... should i make him cry or let him believe his truck is the sh!t?

Pretty sure he will beat you in a race if you are bone stock. You may have a chance with a tuner. If you had a 6.0 you would smoke him with a tuner.

Pretty sure you could drag the 1500 with no problem as long as you're both 2wd. Or if you're both 4wd.

I've seen a 4wd Tacoma drag a 2wd Superduty dually. I'm not in to pulling due to possible damages.

Yeah no offense, but a Hemi Ram would smoke a stock 7.3. Get exhaust and a tuner then maybe you can keep up with him.

2007 XL CC,DRW,4x4.
6.0 Woes


When I die I wanna go peacefully in my sleep like my Grandpa, not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.
