Eaten up by a duramax

I was driving home when I saw a GMC 2500 cruising along. Had stickers on the back window: PPE Power, Inglewood Transmission, J&S Motorsports, etc. I figured he would be quick. As I passed him (traffic in his lane) I looked in my sideview mirror and noticed a missing foglight... in its place a funnel like I've seen on turbo drag cars. I knew I was in for an *** whooping, but figured "what the hell why not". I slowed down some and let him calmly catch up to me. That's when I heard this monstrous whistle coming from his engine bay. Now I was curious to see just how bad my loss would be. We were doing about 75mph and he let me make the move. I nailed it and not even a puff of smoke came from exhaust (I don't know why I looked at my mirror). The whistle next to me got louder and he instantly started pulling away. We maybe hit 100 and he had a truck length on me by then. We both slowed back down and as I pulled up next to him we gave each other the thumbs up. Then I proceeded to exit the fwy and go the other way since I missed my exit many miles back. Lol. I now find myself looking for injectors and an even bigger turbo!

Yeah Duramax really puts out, doesnt take much to get them moving. I had an 03 CCSB Duramax with just and intake and a 4" straight pipe and it was quick for an LB7.

I agree they are pretty quick trucks, I'm guessing the fact that they are lighter than the Fords. Everytime I drive my dads truck it makes me want to beef mine up. Even though there fast, its still a Chevy and ill take my ford over it any day.

The duramaxes are very quick trucks but he obviously had a built trans so you know he has alot of stuff done to it. They are also really light trucks compared to ours. I'd stilll take a ford though.

You cant win em all. Lol. I knew they were quick. I cruise the duramax forums from time to time so I had an idea. I still prefer my ford! If I got another truck the only consideration would be a 6.4l!

Any idea what generation the D-max was?

And a tuned 6.4 would be stiff competition for a D-max

Not sure, but I took pictures. Here's a front view of his truck. Notice the funnel?
