3rd gen cummins goes down

Hey all this is my 1st post here. I was headed back to kansas with my new tranny installed and built by jon faubion in OKC area cruise set at 85 passin alot of people when all of a sudden i notice a new dodge i passed pacing me driver grinning ear to ear. He hammered down and pulled 1/2- 1 truck length on me, then the turbo lit and we were off. He and his buddy had a huge grin on their faces to start out the race and by the time i pulled back even with them they had wtf looks . Did i mention i picked on one that had some sort of box on it? He had plenty of smoke but it was all show and no go . I pulled about 6-7 lengths on him and shut it down, he caught up with me and was a good sport both driver and his buddy gave me thumbs up. Also i picked on another one after i dropped a cyl, it was a 3rd gen with no smoke i beat him but not very badly since i was gimping on 7 cyl. Thought i just dropped inj, but turns out i had 2 bent pushrods in cyl4. Also bent connecting rod, rocker arms and broke the lifters. Full rebuild in progress
