If he has a stock truck, no addons, you will probably get him

chipped 7.3's with out big oil are mid to low 15 sec trucks... I dont know what a VP times are on an Edge but I know the CR's are low 14;s now if you can grab gears good then it will be a close race..

It comes down to your shifting really. Launch in 2nd. My brothers stock 7.3 won't get out of its own way, that thing is a dog.

If he is stock as you say, you have it won easily, if he is chipped, it will probably be close.

Be careful though.

Seriously, what do you have to lose by racing him anyways? I say just go for it. You know if he beats you, you either need to practice shifting, or his truck isn't stock.
