'03 6.0 vs '96 12v

what do you guys think- my good friend has an 03 6.0, 2wd, auto trans straight pipe, intake, programmer to come soon.(along with head studs n other such 6.0 precautionary measures) we have a friend with a 96 12v cummins who thinks its the fastest truck in town. its got a 4" mbrp, intake, 0 fuel plate, 90horse injectors and nothing done to the fuel system. its a manual too. a showdown is in the near future, and i dont think this dodge is as fast as he is claiming. i think that with a decent programmer/tunes the psd will take it, maybee give a run for its money without the programmer. tell me what you folks think

My next door neighbor has 97 12v with 0 fuel plate, injectors and exhaust. I destroyed that truck with my tow tune. We don't even want to mention what happened with the X-Race file

heck yeah man! ive ben doubting the speed of 12 valves, i just hate how 12v owners think that just because their truck is big, loud, and smoky, then they think its fast.
whenever our little dodge buddy decides to step up to the plate i will relay the details

Im a ford truck guy all the way because of how well they are built. But that said the twelve valve is a far superior engine to the 6.0. the only thing that 6.0 can do is beat the 12 valve off the line. And it will not beat it off the line if the heads blow or the EGR fails or it over heats or ect,ect. If you ever get a chance to drive or work on that 12 valve you will have to respect it.

Just bought!, 1997 F350 CCLB 5 speed manual, For now the only mod is the 4" straight pipe
2002 extended cab long bed 7.3, 3.5" lift with 37x 12.50 Terra Grapplers on 17" Pro Comps, ts 6 pos chip, 05 grille, DIY 6637 air intake, 4" MBRP exhaust with muffler delete, Built trans with PI TC tugger shift kit and suncoast 5 disk drum, custom made one peice drive shaft, Edge CTS

A 12v is a good engine, don't think it was mentioned that it wasn't. However, a 12v with the mods he has won't come close to running with a 6.0

It wont run with the 6.0 and also its a manual and diesel mans have a long throw he might maybe keep up motor to motor that is a big might but there is no way he can shift as fast. Takes to long i dont care how fast he is that 6.0 will out shift him. As long as the 6.0 dont blow up the 12v dont have a chance. I raced my buddies 5.9 HO with my 7.3 stroker and he had a smarty on level 7 i had my edge on fuel mileage setting he would just pull me but i passed him everytime he shift and ended up beating him did it every time just cant shift fast enough now when i turned the tuner up he had no chance.

Some people are like slinkies they are completely useless but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a set of stairs
