beat by a vortec

Was down in my.home state of Florida last week hanging out with some old friends and one of them has a straight axle conversion 2500 ecsb 6.0vortec with about 10 inches of lift and 37s. Truck has cold air, exhaust and a bullydog gt so I figured why not race. Started at 40 mph and I had him til I upshifted to 5th gear then he caught me and left me , I know I'm pretty much stock but anyone else ever mess with some Chevy 6.0s and get beat like that

I used to have an 03' 1500HD with the 6.0 vortec.

My Powerstroke 6.0 will beat it easily.

Does your truck restrict your max speed? I think untuned trucks limit the speed to a certain mhp, but not sure.
