So here's the situation: I got my truck just over 2 months ago. My buddy got his '01 Cummins about a week after that. Me, being all excited about finally making the switch from a gasser to a diesel, told him we should line 'em up.
Before I continue, the specs on the trucks were:
Mine: 1996 ECLB 4wd 7.3 PSD, auto trans, 196k miles
His: 2001 ECLB 4wd 5.9 Cummins, auto trans, 98k miles
Both trucks were also bone stock
. Basically, the trucks are twins of each other, just different makes. About 11 o'clock one night, we went out to a perfectly straight, deserted backroad. We lined up, doing a spooled 4wd launch. As soon as his passenger yelled "GO!!", we took off. He jumped me initially, but as soon as I hit 2nd gear I took the lead, and it stayed that way until I let off at about 70 and he thought he would be a hardass and blow by me
So now, whenever he gives me a crap about owning a Ford, I remind him that my baby that's 5 years older with 100,000 more miles still showed him who's boss. His only response to that is "Well, you have more cylinders...". I guess if that's the case, I could light up any built up, boosted, NOS'ed import I wanted to
Don't get me wrong, I like the Cummins a lot too, I'm just excited I beat him!
