raced a 7.3

I have a 2005 f250 short box standard cab 6.0 and I raced a crew cab 99-02ish 7.3 a few weeks ago from about a 15 roll I instantly put about 5 on him he was throwin' all kinds of smoke, and mine wasn't thrown' any (and it was chuggin the whole time) so I let off at about 70 and met him at the next Mi. turn around. he was like "man what chip is in that thing you killed me and it doesn't even smoke", all as I had was a TS MP8, so I says a custum burn with 4 turbos it cleans up all my smoke... the dude didn't know what to say So I left it at that
Well I took my truck into the dealer and found out that I had 5 bad injecters (the cause of my chuggin' and no smoke ) and I still killed this dude
just thought it was funny

Speaking of which I was coming out of AutoZone the other day and some guy stops me. Asks me if I have had problems with my A/C kicking out. I told him no, blah, blah, blah...we get to talking about the trucks and I tell him what all I have on mine. He proceeds to tell me that the other day he was riding through town with his 16' trailer that has 2 zero turns, God knows how many weed eaters and rakes, and tons of other crap on it when a Mustang GT pulls up on the side of him and starts reving his motor. The guy tells me that he proceeds to race the guy from stop light to stop light through town and beats him every time. I say "wow, you must have some serious mods to do that". He looks at me and as serious as he could possibly be says "hell no, that's bone stock...think what she'd do with mods".

Got that right!

I didn't want to burst the guys bubble or nothin' so I just smiled and said "that's cool man" and walked off.

O, and that's an 18 second truck towing about 6k lbs. So probably more like a 20 something second truck. laugh
