Got killed by a 7.3

So yesterday i was heading upstate to go hunting and was stuck in some serious traffic before the turnpike. I had another superduty behind with a 05+ grille and old style bumper, didn't think much of it. got to the exit and i rolled a little bit of coal, i guess he didn't like that. Got into different toll booths and then i heard that 7.3 straightpipe sound come blasting out the other side. I put the pedal to the floor and he just barely stayed in front of me. Then we went again merging onto the highway and again he just barely stayed ahead of me. later down the road he was getting off so i slowed down next to him and gave him a thumbs up and he did the same right back.


Pretty much im going back to running the 150hp tune all the time now. I was only running the 50hp when this took place. If I had the 150 on i wouldve blew him away for sure.

im not embarrassed at all, more impressed than anything. It sounded like a fresh motor, not like those worn out 300k mile 7.3s.
