Hunting a Duramax

Let me know if I have a shot.

So I have seen this guy cruisin around in a Red CC 2500 d-max. My buddy said he's got banks duals. I'm no sure what else he is running in it. Assuming it's just got the exhaust and an Intake. You think I can take him? Should I wait till I put the edge juice with attitude and my new exhaust in? I'm kinda itchin to take this guy I keep seeing him around.

I would prolly wait, get a little extra and then get him. Or you could do it now, and then surprise him later after you get you new toys.

From the looks of your sig it looks like you've just got a straight pipe and exhaust, right? You'll probably have a tough time keeping up with just those mods. And if he's got any kind of chip on it you really don't have much of a chance. Go for it, but don't bet.

I drive a Red Duramax

Stacked programmer and module, duel mbrp exhaust, AFE intake, race tranny, lift pumps, etc..........no chance in taking it, whoops, I'm in Texas not New York, you must be talking about another red crew cab duramax. Good luck in racing him, a lot of the 04 & up duramaxes have gone to EFI Live Programming which will make them very tough to beat, a lot are running in the 10 - 11 sec. range right now. Let me know how it goes if ya'll line up.

Being there is only a few 7.3's in the 11's and even fewer 6.0's in the 11's I doubt we can touch EFI live. Since there are NO powerstrokes in the 10's, that won't be touched!

Chevy's are like ethiopian runners vs bill goldberg in a 1/4 mile... They weight ALOT less and have more advanced technology in their engines. About the only way you're going to touch him is if he isn't chipped and you are... If he is chipped you'll need injectors and probably a turbo, and if he's got EFI you'd better go the whole 9yards... ok i'll stop.

I know how you can beat him, when he gets ready to take off, hook a strap to him, and then you can pull him all over the place
