HP debate

I thought this would be the appropriate place for this question.


Take a 400hp 6.0 psd and a 400hp chevy gasser. Give them the exact same transmission. And exact same rear end gear ratio. Make the trucks weigh exactly the same.

Have them pull the exact same 20k lb load up the exact same 6% grade for a half mile.

Which one gets up the hill faster? And why?

Yeah, HP is pretty irrelevant when talking towing. Torque moves mass.

NOBAMA!!


Is it just me, or does it seem like all Dodge drivers are A$$holes?

I'd say Diesel cause the Turbo will build boost and get her moving up the hill.
