I was on my way back to the house this afternoon and due to some big hills on the HWY my truck was rollin a little coal goin up them. I was on the cell phone with a friend when i notcie a white singlecab flatbed ford with a SCT sticker above the F-350 sign come up beside me, he's obvioulsy in the playful mood as he decides to roll a little coal on me :hehe: there was a long straight away in front of us and the roads were unusually clear so i figured what the heck...I drop the hammer, black smoke everywhere and gain a good 2 lengths on him right away, i was gettin pretty dern excited as i figured i had just won my FIRST race:nod:

Low and behold i look in the mirror to see him gainin on me fast, REAL FAST :doh: with just a small haze comin out his tip, next thing i know he's in front of me by a length. I let off at 90mph and he was still leaving me behind.

The truck really looked like a 7.3 but with how hard he was pullin on me im thinking it had to be a 6.0 runnin custom tunes:dunno:

I also threw the SES light, anyone know what a "common" code to throw when runnin the truck that hard is? HPOP not keepin up?

Long story short...i got beat:(

i got a guy at work with a 7.3 that wants to run with me.. all i have is my tuner. he has injectors and a turbo, with an intake. i dont know what else he has or may have, but he thinks ill stomp him. i doubt i will. I dont think i want to line up with him till i get regeared... 37's with 3.73's takes a bit out of my HP/TQ levels.

badges, headlights, grill/bumper. imo it doesnt mean anything with how people mod these trucks, i had a 99 f350 try rolling with me one day, he had an 05 front end and 6.0 badges, the only way i could tell was the old style 4x4 sticker on the bed and the fact that he told me it was a 7.3

theres a guy in my town with a 6.0 that has 7.3 style badges on it. i was thinking of doing that, make people think wtf :hehe:
