7.3 Kills 96 Chevy

Well, Me and a buddy comin back from a bonfire when a 96? Chevy 1500 Z71 pulls up next to my on the highway. Had some dual exhaust that was cackling whenever he pulled up next to me. We were goin about 60~ when he started honkin, so i knew he wanted to race. I turned the chip up to 120r, honked 3 times, and took off. Pulled away from him about 2 lengths, then started to slow down. Come to a red light, and he rolls his window down and the guy says to do a race from dead stop to a house ahead. I tried to do a boosted launch off the start, but it was wayyy to wet to do that. I sat there and spun in 1st, let off and shifted, then gunned it and got sideways again, then just hammered it and barely got him by half a length. Not really exiting, but its a kill.

I've had several Z's with the 5.7's and 5.3's, they sound good and will run with the Ford gasser's, but won't touch these diesel's. How did I ever live without one!?! BTW, those Vortec engines wouldn't pull a greasy string outta a cat's azz.

Yea, 5.7's really dont have that much power. And 5.3's are good solid motors. If it wasn't wet out that night i could have really pulled away with a good launch
