Road trip sightings....

Since getting my diesel I started noticing other diesel related things while driving (same as noticing older muscle cars after getting my '69 Camaro). Well here goes the story:

When I left my house I was still on backroads and saw a common rail 5.9 coming towards me, when he passed me he floored it. All I heard was a lot of racket (had to have just been a straight piped) and saw a lot of smoke, not a lot of go in that one. Later on the trip another straight piped 5.9 decided he wanted to pass me and cut me off he ran out of space too fast and I didn't even get off my cruise control! Needless to say he didn't pass me.

What I did notice with all this. Straight piped cummins sound like crap. They just sound like a lot of ruckus. The PSDs and even DMaxes sound tight and performance oriented in comparison. This might be because I'm coming from LS gas motors and other small block Chevy motors. I'm also sure that the legitimate built cummins probably sound better.

Anyhow, figured I'd share and see what other people's opinions were.

Seems all cummins drivers do that. my buddy drives one and every truck he sees he has to (attempt) to leave them in a cloud of smoke... No matter what truck, dmax or powerstroke... All smoke, but no go. Hes already on his 5th trans.

I just remembered there was another cummins (I'm pretty sure a 6.7) goin north on 635 around Dallas (I was going south), but all I remember is seeing a cloud of smoke, enough to block out the whole underpass, in rush hour traffic. I think the guy was just trying to change lanes! What's up with all the smokey tunes?!

Totally agree too. Chit I'm 25! My goal from the beginning has been big power 0 smoke. Don't get me wrong, there are definitely some powerful cummins trucks out there (and more than enough PSD owners who just want to roll coal til all the diesel is all used up), but I just don't get it.

I just enjoy stealth tho.
