So Much For The Tundra.

Since my normal kill posts are humorous instead of an actual kill I thought I would post yesterday's experience.

I left work and got onto the main road near work. There was a Tundra behind me at the light as we turned. It was an extended cab of the 4.7 ilk....

I got up to the next light (which is always red when I get there) and sure enough I guess he decided that big ole' Ford just wasn't going to be fast enough for him to follow so he moved into the lane next to me ... I wasn't sure if he was going to be moving out or not so just in case I spooled up a little bit but not enough to break the tires loose on launch... The light changed and I just kinda rolled on it which in itself was enough to put him back a half a truck length (or two thirds of a Toyota pickup length )... Because of his custom exhaust setup I could hear he was all over it so I finished pushing it to the floor... By the time I caught 4th he was 4 lengths behind...

Too bad he turned off shortly after as I would have said "you best either get a new 5.7 or go whole hog for a diesel truck" .... I probably would've let him in on my secret too - - "mines bone stock"....

It's easy to pick on a 4.7 but don't mess with the new 5.7! At least not with a stock 6er.

I would bet you are correct... It's got lots of HP and decent torque (for a gasser anyway) and it's in a truck that is substantially lighter then the SDs... I'm sure it's a pretty quick package... Can't say I'm sold on their new body design but then too it's taken me awhile to get used to the 2008 SDs (not quite sure yet even now)...
