    2011 EcoBoost Vs 2005 Duramax

    My buddy wanted to race, so I did it. He has an 05 duramax with a hundred horse tune. My 11 is bone stock. I beat him by 1 and half truck lenths in a 1/4 mile. I was surprised and he was impressed. Now he wants a EB. He is a die hard duramax chevy guy. I doubt he will get one, but it was fun.

    It is amazing how much this truck can pull off the line and keep building like a freight train down the road (until its "anchors away" governor kicks in). I think the best part so far for me has been when I smoke another guys/gals truck and have to explain how big the motor really is and than have to lift the hood and prove it.

    My dad, die hard Ford guy, said this exactly the other day grinning ear to ear as I took him for a ride in my new truck. FWIW he has an 06 F150 5.4

    Is your truck stock? Don't get me wrong, these trucks are quick, but there is no way I would even dream of racing a stock Eco against an sti.
    2013 Sterling Gray FX4 157", Appearance Package, Max Tow, 36 Gallon Tank, 43k miles. mods include a set of back up lights that added +/- 75 rwhp and 100 rwtq because I drank kool-aid while installing them. Actually that last part is a lie. My cousin installed them. But I drank kool-aid while he did it.
