Can you say "Lunch"?

Ok on July 5th I was driving around in my lil chev 1500, and I was sitting at a light and I see this straight piped PSD (6.0) come barreling down the highway and comes to a halt in the left lane besides me. And he looks over to me and points ahead and I'm thinking "Why waste fuel I'm going to loss my *** anyways." So I'm like what the hell mise as well put on a show so I hear his turbo starting to spool and I'm over there trying to rev to sound somewhat impressive and the light turns green and I just get a soot bath :rant: ! But my foot was still mashed to the floor and by the time I caught up to him he was about 5 truck lengths (and still pullin away) ahead of me . So he turns to the Citgo and points me over, so I follow. He went to the diesel pump and I was low on fuel anyways so I went to my GAS pump and while I was filling up I went over there and talked to the dude. I asked him what he got done to it and he says 5in straight pipe, AEM workhouse intake, gauges "duh", and a SCT tuner tuned by Innovative diesel. I'm thinking this dude must be from powerstroke.org or something! Oh yeah his truck was a 06 and when he raced me he was on his economy tune the cool part about this guy to is he used to own a chev just like mine and was giving me useful cheap tips on how to make it somewhat fun with better MPG. He was a GM mechanic. And that was the murder I suffered! :bonk:

If you're going to spend all the $$$ to do that, why don't you just upgrade to an oil burner and save yourself the trouble???

dont forget the msd box and upgraded HEI module, headers, 454 injectors, headers, and deleting the belt drive fan is good for about 20 hp in the ole cheppies I mean chevy's

I duno I love my diesel but something about the built gasser that still turns me on! I dont know why? I guess a part of me still likes a motor that will rev over 3500 rpms
