Expedition+big pipes+intake= still slow
I was on my way to pick up my daughter form swim practice. (Outside heated pool) I had my Doberman loaded up in front with me. It was about 6:45 pm and dark outside. This red Expedition pulled out in front of me and I heard him stand on it. I looked at the rear of the truck and I saw it had two 4" pipes coming out the right hand side under the bumper. It actual looked kinda nice. I was going up beside him and he gunned it again. We were coming up on a stop light, I was saying to myself, "please let it turn red I know you can do it TURN RED!!!" well low and behold it went yellow then red. YES!!!! I am doing to do this guy like and hungry hooker in the middle of winter looking for lunch money. So I pulled my Doberman (65 lbs) up in my lap tight so she dose not get slammed back in seat then I started looking for some angry music to listen to while I smoke this guy. (you all have done it so do not laugh!) I saw the light turn yellow on the other side and I stab the brake and bring up the RPM and make about 15 psi of boost the truck is trying to go forward. The other light turns red, CRAP the turning lane on the other side goes green! So I drop the RPM's, (the other guy is doing the same I can hear him) So I wait just a few seconds and I bring the RPM;s back up. Our light turns green I am thinking I am going to launch this thing like a crouching tiger coming out the grass after a antelope in the plains of Africa (or Bush Gardens). I let off the brake and I see him take off. I see his front door, his back door and those damn exhaust pipes agian. I feel my truck starting to move and I hear the 35X12.5X20"Toyo
MT's spinning. I look at the Doberman and she looks back at me like you pull me tight for this? Then the truck finally gets some traction, I look out and see a blur out exhaust pipe back door and front door all in one! I gave him all the gears I let off when I was at about 100 mph and 20 or more lengths in front of him. I know that guy must of thought that big truck is slow when he left me at the line.
In the end he turned off and gave me the peace sign with is fingers. (fingers not finger) So all in all it was fun, but there is a moral in this story, Either angry music or Four wheel High choose you fate. (I choose wrong but still came out on top!):smoke
