Well I am pretty proud of my 02 Excursion.
She has a K&N Stage 2 Intake, and a 3.5" Down pipe to a full 4" strait piped exaust with a chrome 5" turn down tip in the factory location. Thats ALL I know her to have. Shes got a lift and 35's to go with that. Enough of that.
I live just outside of Lehi, Utah and I was coming home last night from work when I pulled along side a brand new 2010 Dodge Dually Diesel 3500. This truck had the paper temp plate in the rear window but had already been seriously modded. From the outside I could tell of the lift, 22.5" Alcoas and full size tires big rig style, Dual Exaust with about a 5" tip coming out of both sides behind the rear tires. I have to give the guy credit that the truck was a very good looking Blue color with a lot of chrome accents, but it was still a DODGE.
So this is what happened. He was at the light in the middle lane, and I was coming up to the light to turn right but when I saw this truck, I wanted a better look so I decided to go strait. He kinda looked over at me in my Ex and we both gave eachother the "nod" and he kinda started revving up a little. I let the kid in me get the best of me and I started to play. I built up my boost and my turbo started to whine louder as I kept my foot firmly on the floor while my brakes started to beg for a release. He started revving up his motor andI could only assume that he moved his controller to "RACE" on his dashboard, because he started bellowing smoke out of his tailpipes like a freight train. I thought for a second that I had really bitten off way more than I could chew because his turbo really started to drown out mine and he was stating to kinda laugh and smile at me.......
Thats when the light turned green and I released my left foot. My truck jumped and the dodge was right behind me. I heard him shift and I thought for sure that he would catch me by the other side of the large intersection.
Thats when I heard his engine rev really fast a few times..... HE LUNCHED HIS CLUTCH!!!
I could see smoke coming from under his cab as he was rolling thru the intersection and he had his turn signal on to move off the road. I pulled over with him to be a good sport and to also get a better look at his set-up. He would not open his hood but we both got under his truck and you could feel the heat radiating from the fly wheel area and the smell was just overwhelming. Anyways, I towed him into the gas station parking lot just behind where we started our little race, and kinda had a smirk on my face as I pulled out and headded back home.
All I can say is
2002 EXCURSION - 7.3 Turbo, 6" Lift, 35" BFG's, Stage 2 Intake, 3.5" DP to a 4" MBRP No Cat/DPF- Strait Piped- w/ 5" Tip, Locked F/R, and much more to come!!
