Well

I have personally seen some in the 500+ range. Several here on the site including Stump and now granny with her new sticks.

Probably would be a ton of high hp 6.0's had they gone common rail with it.......the Duramax was already CR and the the 03 CTD got common rail in 03, they knew it was coming.........
I haven't heard any of any 6.0's past 700 but there might be one or two out there.

well if you have some money to spend and yur 6.0 your good to go but i have yet to see psd's putting down the hp d-max's and cummns are capable of, hopefully we'll come around. funny thing is though some psd's seem to win races that d-maxs and cummins don't. that extra 1-200 hp the d-max claims with its insane crazy progammer and mods, sometimes doesnt make much difference come drag time. and that high hp cummins that happens to be stick dont wanna go stop light to stoplight with me in town, especially if his g/f is sittin next to him "just my two cents" speaking from a street racing standpoint

like the corvette c-5 i had a little bout with, long story short he spun like an idiot and i (for a lack of words) "raped" him in front of traffic. i love getting a thumbs up.

Check my sig...

542 HP/790 Torque


That's on a mild water/meth mix (75/25 windshield wiper fluid) and on my Xtreme Street program. Running Xtreme Race, bumping up the mix to 50/50 and optimizing the controller for boost (instead of EGT, which is where I have it now) might be good for another 25 HP or so and another 40 ft/lbs of torque...

Got my FASS coming too, and that should be good for a pretty significant/additional kick in the pants. Sticks aren't in the plans for the immediate future, and if I do them they'll be on the conservative side (Stage I/II tow/tow power). My tranny's stout and in great shape and I want to keep it that way, I use my X for towing and outside of the dyno runs and an occasional "ricer romp" I take it easy. I'm more concerned with reliability, driveability and longetivity...

Just for laughs I'll probably run it up @ New England Dragway this spring in NH. Should be sub-14s easy.

Tuned D-Maxes and Dodges are monsterous. The D-Maxes have the HP edge while the Cummins are the torque monsters...

Cummins engines still have recorded higher hp numbers than any dmax. 1289 latest high number for CR Cummins.

I would hope that with 542 hp you would be in the very low 13s with your Ex! Keep us posted on how she does.

You don't see very many 6.0s above 600 hp. Every one of them that I know of hs not stayed together. It looks like somewhere around 600 is where the 6.0 rods tend to give up. It just cost too much money to build a super high power Powerstroke. You can make 600 hp with a CR Cummins for less than $1000. Another $1000 will get you much higher than that. Of course that much power is going to cost several more thousand in reality because you will need a tranny to hold it.

I've NEVER "officially" drag raced until I went to the (Dodge/Jeep) SRT Track Experience recently, had 12 drag races and won every one. I cut an .001 R/T which I was pretty happy about. It was cool and got me thinking seriously about it...

I don't want to flog my tow beast too much, the dyno puts as much stress (if not more) than the track I suppose; it'd just be nice to have a slip to go with it. The looks I get when I roll on the coal are priceless...

I think everyone would agree that the Cummins and Duramaxes tune much better and get higher numbers than the Powerstrokes. Elite Diesel has the (internal) parts in particular that would really be capable of some incredible numbers but man would it ever be expensive. Like you said, around a grand for a tuner, intake and exhaust and your Dodge/Chevy-GMC is a monster...
