Killed a 24v?

So i was driving down i5 today towards corvallis and a dodge pulling a tiny trailer with a quad on it pulls in front of me and just BLACKS OUT the road. I am thinking smoke switch or something because he didnt go anywhere haha... So i get over and pull up next to him and put my chip on "street race" which is one below extreme. I get on it a little to see if he will run.. and by this time we were slowed down to abotu 50 mph. I dont know what his truck had done to it but it black out 3 lanes of traffic as we raced from 50-85 and i beat him by 2 truck lengths.

Couldnt of been tuned right? a 24v tuned would kill me wouldnt it?

He probably just had some really big injector nozzles and untuned so it smoked like madness. lol Egts climbing with that little trailer thats why its so little lol jk Good story tho, probably made him wonder why you didnt smoke as much as him but were pulling on him, or he blamed it on the quad lol

I have buddies with 12v and i dont think i'd eat them for lunch. Depending on how goo you are with a wrench those trucks are FAST.

yeah I know the smoke doesnt make him fast lol, i was thinking he just had a smoke switch with a stock truck or something. On the dodges that smoke switch will do wonders for rollin coal. To bad they dont go anywhere while doing it HAHAHA

Cummins' can't be tuned with custom tunes anyway, they can only use "cookie cutter" chips/programmers/modules because of the CANBUS system they use. The way to make a Cummins really fast is hard parts like a set of injectors, turbo, etc. A 24v Cummins could probably fly with a good hot tune from Edge, Smarty, etc., but what really lights the wick is induction, fuel, & some internals. The guy probably either didn't know how to drive or had crap for a chip.

Oh I was mistakin then, I thought that the commin rail injection could be tuned quite a bit with pulse width and rail pressures and such. I know the old 12 valves you just get as much air and fuel in as possible lol good times with those 12 valves! Thats good to know tho, my pops has a new 6.7 cummins were gonna start modifying soon so that should be fun. Still a good story tho ha cracks me up when people runnin OBS can keep up with the big boys, Its a nice site needs to happen more often lol.

Well, I know it can't be done with a 5.9 24v. I actually don't know a thing about the 6.7 & common rail injection, so you might want to do some research on that, you could be right about the pulse width, etc.
