raced a 6.0

Well me and my buddy raced tonight. My truck is in the sig. He has a 07 6.0, all stock with 35's. We both 4x4 boost launched. I was in extreme. I pulled on him off the line and at 50-60 mph was ahead by a little less then a truck length and he ended up passing me at 90mph. I was suprised that the old 7.3 did that well... I was expecting to loose.

Oh and I have reg cab, long bed/ he had crew cab short bed.

Sounded Like A Good Race!!! If Your Buddie Had A Programmer & A Couple Mods It Would Have Been Really Ugly For Ya!!! The 6.0's Just Build More Power!!

Ask him what RPM he launched at 2k is the sweet spot.

he said he launched at 20psi. I launched at around 12psi. I maxed out at 25 psi during that run.

I know guys...so far this thread is all 6.0 owners telling me that if he had this or that I would lose. Im fully aware, I raced because he was stock. Yes the 6.0's are faster then 7.3's. Im modded, he was stock and thats why it was even a race. Just trying to share a story.
