went up against a 1/2 chevy it had a v6 4.7L. i smoked him. Then went up against an s-10. he beat me, but about 3-4 truck lengths. How much will i be able to beat him when i get my chip? i got him out of the hole, then he just kept going

How do you figure that? Look at what his truck weighs and look at what my truck weighs. He has a better HP to weigh ratio, of course he is going to beat me
You will be better off when your chip gets to you.

So i take it your truck is stock?

What chip are you getting? after you get it youll definately notice the difference.

personally i never raced anything when my truck was stock so i wouldnt know how it would do against anything else.

The s-10's can be pretty quick. Used to drive an older one before they put the vortec 4.3 in them and it was respectable. With the 190hp or the 210hp 4.3(depending on the year) with an intake/exhaust I could see it being a problem for a non chipped/tuned truck.

I'm not sure what year it is. there is no way a non chipped powerstroke will beat him. i will with my chip. right?

You shouldn't have much trouble with him after the chip. Before I got my SCT I tried a few s-10's and it was close, but since my looney tune was installed there is no contest.
