Diesels are no joke, theres a local guy near me that has a white F250 Powerstroke that runs 12's in the quarter and sounds like an airplane

I know atleast in the GM Family the 2500HD 6.6L Duramax is the fastest pickup in the lineup, itll smoke a 5.3 1500 or a 6.0 gas 2500HD

6 litre goes pretty good. well better than the 7.3 anyway but they dont last long. i say hes gonna beat you but you should hang in pretty tough though. i dont think you will get beat bad. if it was a duramax, then id say dont waste your gas!!! he'll kill ya

I know that with the new duramax 6.6s they make 360hp stock and that's at 3200 rpm, even the big 6 liter gas motor only does 350hp @ like 5800 rpm so not only does it have more hp then its gas counterpart it also has it available at a way lower rpm

Then with torque its not even competition as the duramax has 600+ pounds of torque from the factory

If it was from a dig it was probobly because he was spinning. I know the new body style ones I think 07+ got a bump in power with a more aggressive PCM tune from the factory

The ones at my friends GMC dealership will spin through 1st, 2nd and 3rd if you gun it from a stop it'll spin thru the first 3 and it'll break em loose from a roll anything under 30ish

Ive always had a fascination with diesel trucks, I would of considered a diesel instead of my trailblazer BUT theres no way in hell i could afford 100 dollers a week in gas to fill up a 30 gallon tank every week

sure seems to get up there a hell of a lot faster then my trailblazer

Powerstroke killer

i am a ford diesel tech at a dealer. i believe the last production 7.3l had
250 hp and the 6.0l has 325 hp. you should stomp a stock powerstroke easily. however, if he adds a tune look out. a guy i work with's son has a 2004 6.0l 4 door 4 wheel drive f-250 with over sized tires who eats mustangs in the 1/4! its a shame how unreliable the "sick leakers" are. no complaints though, they have kept me busy for the last 6 years!

Just a little bit about the duramax........

My parents have a 06 silverado 2500HD with the duramax and my dad wanted to have some fun. Needless to say it has balls! It hauled ass and was leaving a trail of beautiful black smoke behind. These trucks are simply awesome.

As for ford we had a 1996 f250 with the 7.3L turbo powerstroke. This truck always seemed gutless no matter what we did. When we had this truck (since new) it always seemed like it needed a power boost or something. Once on the highway it was great, but accelerating was very slow. Unfortunately we lost it to a fire that was caused by something under the hood. We were in the house and before we knew it the entire truck was full of flames. Apparently this was a common issues with these trucks. It only had 83k :hopeless We replaced this with the duramax. No more fords in the driveway after this:nono:

My 7.3 is a dog even with the 70 horse chip (F350 with 4.11's) but my dad's 6.0 F250 with 3.73's was awesome! You would have to experience getting sideways from a standing start....in a longbed crewcab! It would definantly take our Trailblazer.

My son has a 250 w/7.3. Bully Dog 3 stage, 3" exhaust, on 35s. My TB won't touch it after stage 2 of the tune. I've watched him dust ustang GTs on tune 3.

Stock, it is pretty much neck and neck.

On the stage 3, he can pull out with an 8000# trailer and keep up with traffic...
