Me vs Cummins

Thought I would share...


So I was running some errands this evening and I happened to come across this Black, Crew Cab, Dually, Dodge Ram. I followed and he started to black smoke me. I pulled up next to him and gave him some revs to show I wanted to play. He yelled for me to follow, so I did.
We pulled in to a fuel station and talked...

He told me he knew I wanted to play so he figured I should know WHAT I was up against. He told me he Dyno'd 800whp. He popped his hood, showed me the 80mm turbo, Nitrous, ect. He had a 15lb Nano Nitrous bottle in the back seat. I told him "Cool, win or loose it's all fun to me!"

So we shot the **** for a little bit, and decided to go south of town to clip off a few runs. (Mind you he NEVER asked and I NEVER told what I had)

First race:
we ran from a Dig and he told me to take the hit. So I stalled it up and off I went. After I put 2 Busses on him till 70mph I clipped it, few seconds after that he comes FLYING by.

So he pulls over and says "Yeah, I wasn't expecting that!!"

2nd race:
So we turn around and lined up from a dig again. I DO NOT have a horn So I asked him to honk it. He honks it off and away I go. I put 2 buses on him again TILL 85mph where he stops my pull. At 95mph He is COMING FAST! I get to RED LINE IN OD and he comes SCREEMING past me like I'm standing still!!

So we pull over and he's like Yeah I need to do a Roll! He asked for a 30mph Roll, even though I suck at the speed, I said "OK"

3rd Race
He honks it off from a 30 roll. I stay with him till 65ish when he starts really leaving me. By 95mph he had a good Bus length (or more) on me and was still pulling.

We catch the next light I told him good race, his truck runs hard up top, ect. And wave good bye.

All in all, I bet he wasn't expecting a good race from a 95 Powerstroke!

Though I'd have to say he's got some Turbo lag!!

Here's what little video we got, KEEP IN MIND THIS IS A CELL PHONE VIDEO!!!

I've talked to my buddy who's got a cummins, and one thing that stood out in my mind, between the cummins, and the old PSD's, is RPM's. I've got a '95 PSD, and my redline is at about 3400 RPM, the 5.9 cummins redline, is about 1000 RPM higher than that. (appx. 4400). Extra RPMs can mean a lot, especially on top end.

Always good to hear about a PSD showing up a cummins though.

No its not. Unless its p-pumped, its not hitting 4400. A 24v or CR can pull 4k, but after about 32-3400 they drop power like a SOB...

Looks like its a Common Rail; dual pumps, flux 3.5s, and an S480. But an S480 is a big ol bastard and laggy as hell; its typically used as a bottom turbo in a compound setup (thatll be my primary when I do twins). Looked like it had plenty on the top. Id think it would pull harder had he boosted from a stop

Either way, thanks for the vids

'strokeThis_'07, My buddys truck isn't too old. ('02 or '05, I really don't remember). And, to be perfectly honest, when he told me what engine he had, I realy wasn't paying "that" much attention. I know there's a few different versions of the Cummins, (12V, 24V, and CR) but beyond all that, I don't know the differences between them. (and I really haven't tried to learn all that much, as they're not what I have under the hood). They're good motors, and I'll give them their due credit.

So, with all that being said, since my buddy said his red line was appx. 4400 RPM. I know he's done a bit of "tweaking" to it, so who knows. He's up in my neck of the woods now, so I'm going to try to get together with him before he heads back home to Nc.
