Can a Powerstroke equal a Cummins
I took a short ride in a co-worker's 2002 Dodge Cummins 2500 today. He's encouraged me to do the mods that I've performed on my truck.
His 2500 has dual turbos, Banks intake and exhaust, Smarty programmer and big injectors (along with many other mods).
The acceleration absolutely pinned me in the seat. His turbos scream and there's only a little smoke on takeoff and during the shifts. The turbo gauge reads a little over 40 at wot. He said if he goes to the top level of his programmer it boosts over 50.
It's his daily driver and if he keeps his foot out of it he averages 25mpg!
Just amazing. My truck is nowhere near that strong and I don't think it ever could be
The only thing in my truck's favor is that it's a whole lot better looking than a Dodge

First 25k was run on Biodiesel but it's too much trouble so I'm dino-diesel only now > 50k

Reason: Got the year of his 2500 wrong
