5.9 Commain Rail vs. 7.3

I'm not looking to race. I'm not to big into the whole going fast thing. I do however want to pull a buddy of mine. He has a 05 Cummins dually. Has a Smarty tuner and that's it. My truck is a 00' 7.3 with a Superchip. Both are 6 speeds. I have 35in trail grapplers and he has bald terra grapplers. How do ya'll think I stand right now?

the cummins has more low end torque which is where he will get you from the start.. honestly ive never pulled one (or anyone for that matter) but I would think he would have you.. best bet is search youtube for all the guys that pull each other and find a matchup or two similar to yours

5.9 Commain Rail vs. 7.3

There's way too many variables in pulling in order to predict the outcome. There's videos on YouTube of minivans pulling against diesels, with the minivan winning. I am not sure what you have as I'm on my phone, but if he has a drw and you have a srw my guess would be he will pull you due to more traction.

6 speeds, depending on how you and him drive you have chance. Sometime i see people think they are RACING and it sounds like they are drinking a cup of coffe between shifts. When i had my old 7.3 5 speeds i shift that truck like it was a damn civic loll my friends dont understand why the trans didnt blow, me either ahah

So you guys are hooking bumpers? wow

Power doesn't mean a damn thing, it comes down to who has the most grip. A stock IDI could pull a 700hp truck backwards all day, if the IDI has more traction. I've never understand the point of hooking bumpers, doesn't prove a damn thing. Just hurts the truck in most cases.

im with JD on this one, youre just gonna break something. Hes got more horse and torque than you for now, sorry. 7.3s arent as easy to upgrade as common rails. just sit back and take pride in the fact that your truck will not have fallen apart around then engine at 150,000 mles

Why not sled pull instead of hooking bumpers? Just a thought. Hooking bumpers doesn't prove a thing except one person has more traction.
