Thumbs up Killed 2006 LBZ

Ok so Im driving down the highway on my way home from school and I notice a nice looking black duramax, crew cab short bed. Nothiced it had an exhaust on it, but other than that it looked stock. So I get off the highway and so does the Duramax 2 cars behind me, well I decide to give him a little coal to look at from back there as I merged onto the next road. As I'm looking in my side mirror to see my coal..... I see his coal!!!! OH NOW IT'S ON!!!!! (so he has atleast an exhaust and a chip/tuner of some kind from that smoke he just flashed)

My truck is lifted 6" and has 35" tires, so I already think he has the upper hand on me.....

So we both end up at the next light side by side and I can't see into his drivers window because they were tinted so dark, but I can hear his motor slowly increasing RPM's while stopped. (by this point my heart is pumpin real good and the race is a go) So I barely spool my turbo up and then light turns green..... well we were off and we were about dead even until I absolutely matted the pedal and my tranny just pulled me away from him. As soon as I pulled on him (I would say about 3/4 of a length) he either let off, or decided he didn't wanna play any more. We went from 0mph to about 50mph when he fell behind.

Anyways I felt great after this little bit of fun I had, even if he let off... I didn't and I was out front of him hands down. Made me in my 99 7.3L feel pretty happy to know that Duramax with some mods just fell victim to me for that short race. Keep in mind, I have a great deal of respect for Duramax and Cummins trucks and their power potential, this just made me feel great and I thought I would share it.

GREAT KILL!!!

I agree I think both Dodge, and the newer DuraMax - E - Pads are GREAT engines! I just prefer Fords, ALWAYS have! I think is all comes down to personal choice!

Oh yea I do too, I have a buddie with about 15K into his truck and its a 2002 LB7 and its a nasty machine. 1300+Lb Ft or torque The dyno couldnt read the TQ any higher!!! But its a street machine that he drives on the road every day. Guess you can build a nasty race truck when you inherit gobs of money from your parents....

You can build a LOT when you inherit money. It just depends on how much you inherit!
