05 Cummins and Powerstroke KILLED

My buddy has an 05 Cummins 5.9 with a 6spd and was tellin me the specs and whatnot. Told me how fast it is and that I dont have a chance against him. I just laughed in his face. Hes got a stock truck and my f350 has close to 10" of lift and 37's we pulled up side by side and he let his truck spool up in 3rd and dumped it. After the fact he was moving I then let my foot into it absolutley tooling on him. He goes, maybe you were right. Your truck is pretty fast.

The 05 Powerstroke 6.0L had a 4" lift and 36s with 8" stacks. Going up a hill in a 2 lane he waits for me.. I catch up to were even then he mats the throttle. A sec after I do the same and start cruising on by him with no prob. He stops and goes, man I had that thing stuffed. LOL

Im sure his clutch enjoyed the third gear take off.. specially if he was slipping it enough to spool the turbo..

If he started in third, its only two shifts.. 3-4 4-od. done.
thats not tooo much shifting. But losing all your boost when you shift sucks.
Good work. did you regear for 37s?? or running stock gears.?

where you from? I'll show you how long it takes to row 'em.....as long as you can see through my cloud in front of you just messing with ya man...but really if you know how to drive and where to shift they aren't bad at all...and if your fast enough you can keep some boost shifting.
