    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
