My buddy has an '03 Cummins with the diablo preditor, puck, intake, and exhaust. I have an '02 7.3L with Edge juice with attitude, evolution, Afe intake, and monster exhaust. What else do I need or what should I change so I can beat him? We have never raced but if we do I would like to beat him.

I am looking into a dp chip and TN bb turbo. Will a FASS system help right now or just after the dp and turbo? What other mods? Not looking to make this a drag truck it is my daily driver so nothing crazy or too expensive. Also don't want to have to do the rods or studs.

A fass wont really help you, get a tony wildman or a dp chip, turbo and injectors down the road. Do you have gauges and an exhaust yet?

I think it would be a fairly close race when I have the Evo on extreme and the Juice on extreme. I have been in his truck on numerous occations and he in mine. He thinks he is putting out over 400 rwhp but I don't think he is even close.

you have pmrs so your kinda limited to around 400hp, or so what ive read anyways. stage 1 or 2 injectors, with a nice BB drop in turbo, and custom tunes would be a nice driving truck. With more power comes tranny work as well, thats not cheap either:thumb: John wood for the trans work:thumb:

My buddie's 04 dodge common rail with Smarty, intake, exhaust put down 426hp and ran a 14.3 in the 1/4. His new Smarty Revo feels stronger and it is faster than before.

Don't over undestimate that common rail. They make a ton of power with little done to them.

How does that Cummins feel compared to your 7.3 strokin?? Just curious is these smarty dodges are as powerful as they say.

He still can not out run me but it hangs in there until we get up to 75mph and then I pull away.

The one time I drove it, I liked it! NO, you will not see me swapping in a cummins any time soon but it did run very strong.

They do make good power for less but the rest of the truck does not even compare, everytime he gets in mine he tells me how much nicer my truck is. My truck is also the one we use for hunting cause we all fit in it better ( all 6'2 and taller) I don't think he is as confident in his truck off road either (not cause of his ability to wheel).

i would also agree that w/ something like the Snow water meth kit would help you out w/ some safe HP while adding fuel economy .

Kinda offtopic, but how hot do your EGT's get with the juice and evo stacked like that?

With just my Juice on 5, I can hit 1250 without a problem...adding the evo sounds scary :tard:

i hate to say it but the cummins would win they make big power with a few mobs. but if you get turbo, injectors you would win
