05 6.0 vs 05 6.6

so theres a kid at my school, whose mommy and daddy bought a duramax for, i got my truck handed down and 5k given to my dad, anyways, im heading into town on a 4 lane highway, and at a red light, i see this dark blue d-max pull up, didnt notice the driver but saw the body torque a little....it was on. threw her in 4hi and tow haul and revved to about 2k, green light pinned it and had him gone by 10 car lengths in about 1000ft. i had to slow because some guy pulled in front towing a boat, and i see him fly by me, flip me off, and swerve through traffic to look cool... next day in school he starts saying how he smoked me, explained and told him off, then told him to meet me on this old farm road... never showed up hahaha

The ones who get vehicles handed to them aren't always bad (my first/current truck was given to me), but usually they are.
Not gonna lie, I'm surprised you beat him so bad. What's done to yours?

You should edit your signature giving all your trucks details and mods so we know what you have when you tell stories or have questions.

I'm about to graduate high school, I got my 6.0 when I was 16, it was my dads, he got it new, I helped him pick it out at the dealer, never even thinking it could be mine one day. I gave my dad 10K (for a $25K at the time truck) and I pay for insurance, fuel, and anything else I want to do to my truck. I would say it's a pretty fair deal if you ask me

ill be honest, its bone stock, other than the fact that i cut the exhaust off from the turbo down-pipe... im looking into a tuner, either the idp sct, or this quadzilla arednaline II on xtremediesel.com.. not quite sure yet.. need to research this quadzilla thing.

You're contemplating custom tunes and canned?

That's pretty good that you beat a Duramax. Strong suckers stock.

Why would you even contemplate the Quadzilla when everyone here is telling you to custom tune. If you don't have the cash save up and do it right the first time. If you don't you'll be kicking yourself in the a** whine your tranny takes a s*** because of the crappy tune your running. Plus a custom tune will give you a lot more power than any canned tune will.

We're only here to help, trust us we have in many cases learned the hard way. We know what we're talking about.

just an option, i know the sct is the best and truck me, its still first on my list, just came across that quadzilla and looked interesting, 180hp and 235 torque from box seems promising, but i know its not all about numbers with these tunes and i know its definatly worth paying for the custom tune. i got a buddy of mine in my cdl class that works on small diesels and has worked on numerous 6 liters, hes up my *** about mine, getting me to tune it and such
