Me vs a stock 2003 7.3L

My F250 CrewCab vs
A 2003 F250 SuperCab which is completely stock down to the 265/75's. My friend Kyle was driving...

2wd no boost, just all throttle. I spun a little bit at the beginning but caught traction and rolled...

Notice the absence of smoke? There was some at the beginning and the truck hadn't been floored in over 2 days and that was the first time so that explains that. Also, my friend who was driving the truck and myself both were like WTF... we had never seen that much smoke come out like that.



anyways thought this was cool...

Here is the normal smoke on a hard take off...


Another example...

I hit the brakes at 80 mph. I hit 88 in the 1/4 at the drag strip so I think that is pretty close to what would happen.

Many have said that. I am not 100% sure. However no one can seem to explain to me this...
- Why the truck lightly smokes and doesn't smoke at all w/o the 10k.
- Why it runs a 15.2 with this little smoke (which is as fast or faster then most chipped trucks *that smoke a ton* in my bed cab configuration.)
- The truck had NO visible aftermarket mods period when I bought it, it was driven by some lady in Texas.
- Truck is JUST as sluggish around town (when not flooring it) as any other truck.
- Truck was bought back in mid 05 so the programmer would have had to have been already installed and I've yet to see a truck as fast as mine NOT smoke out a block... so basically what I'm saying here is that it would have to be EXCEPTIONAL programming because it's not smoking on stock turbo, injectors, etc... and running as fast as TS, DP, and TW chipped trucks...

Some things that lead me to believe I do have one...
I've hit 100+ mph
My turbo spools up to 25-28 PSI on hard run
Truck seems faster then others I drive

I thought my truck was pretty fast for being stock and I couldn't understand what all the 6.0 converts were talking about when they said 7.3's are a dog LOL.

If anyone would like to answer some of those questions or give their opinon's I'd like to hear them.

O yeh, according to an online calculator (that was 2 hp off of Elmo's dyno #'s), my truck would have to have a minimum of 330 RWHP in order to run 15.2 at 88 at my weight.

All those facts are pretty interesting. I think it's time to call "Unsolved Mysteries" lol. I've seen quite a few trucks run super good runs without much smoke at all, so it's possible.

look around. I'm not going to go searching all over videos to find one. Don't have time. I've seen a few vids here there though of trucks running very good times with just a slight haze off the line. I'm talking low 15's, high 14's.

Are you talking about 7.3's or 6.0's?
