not really a kill story, wasnt a race but...
Driving in NJ next to a black dodge extended cab long bed lifted truck, had big ol smoke stacks on it and muddin tires... 35s at i guess, they looked small compared to its lift imo though.
It was a manual truck, seemed sluggish sounding but figured it would open up when he got in it fully, after making a right and going down a 2 lane semi-highway, he gets on it from a 25mph roll from a light in front of me and at nighttime, blows so much soot up in the air that all the cars along side me "behind the dodge truck" slowed down, couldnt see a dammed thing. It didnt appear very fast, but what do i know, he was onlyk on it for a few seconds at best. When he did let off "and in a cloud of blackness", the blow off valve/wastegate shut so hard that it sounded more like a metal plate gate slammed shut with suction force... like a vacuum cleaner going along the wall where it can't suck from the 1" hose much.. but louder!
Didnt smell like heavy unburned deisel, so im guessing propane injection too? smelled almost more chemicalish than diesel than anything.
the g/f wasnt too impressed, then says im provoking the ****** to drive like that. Yeah i think its cool to puff a little black smoke here and there but even the 06 F350 dually i was in with an aftermarket turbo, intake, 4" dp exhaust/no cat and sct race tune runs 90% clean... imo id be embarrassed if anything i drove made that much smoke when on the gas... but whatever, im 30 so maybe im maturing a little!
What could this guy have had done to it? injectors? turbo.. propane? Does that model 5.9 cummins just do that in general with a tune?
Going to guess it at least had, injectors, turbo, blow off valve, intake, had stacks obviously, tune.
Almost was more funny than amusing. Honestly i think the red tuned F350 in my sig would have kept up with the thing, but again, maybe it was a mid 12 second truck and he was just not on it long enough to find out.
it seemed to blow out a lot more black smoke than this truck ...
.... this seems closer, but still not as much, maybe because it was dark... i mean i have a 5k 60w ballast dual HID kit on the F350 and couldnt see the yellow lines on the road 5 feet in front of the truck at 40mph... cars next to me pulled off the side of the road and slowed down. This is about as close as i can find lol
