Think I could take a Duramax?

I am in no way talking smack about Duramax's because I respect all diesels. I am simply wondering because there is a kid at my college talking smack about how my engine is old, outdated, and gutless. I told him I would tow him around the block and back and to put his money where his mouth is. Now, I rarely talk smack because its just not my thing. However, this guy pissed me off. Hes got a 2004 with Banks tuner, wastegate, and a straight pipe. I am leery because I know what these trucks are capable of, but I think I could probably take him in a pull. What do you guys think? Mods are in my sig. I don't have the head back from the machinist yet, so no injectors, no headstuds, and no fire rings yet. Should I wait, or just go for it?

Are you talking a bumper pull, or a race? If its a bumper pull, whoever spins the tires first loses, doesnt have a whole lot to do with power... If its a drag race, I honestly dont think you have much of a chance...

Its a bumper pull. I know I wouldn't win a drag, my truck definitely wasn't built for speed. Plus he has an auto and I would have to row the gears the whole way. But I think 4 lo, in granny 1st should do pretty well in a bumper pull no?

Because if you think that a wadded up piece of paper is actually getting the chit off of your butt.....then I have to ask a question....

.....if you wiped a turd on your arm....would you just use a paper towel to get the turd off?.....or would you wash your arm?...


...let that thought roll around in your head for a moment...


" thank you tank for that insightful thought

Is his a CCSB, CCLB, RCLB, ECSB, ECLB?
If he had a truck that was a bit heavier he might beat you otherwise you could take him.

I would say don't do something like a bumper pull because it proves nothing and is retarded. The only thing it proves is who has more traction and who has better technique at waiting.

I realize what you are saying, but its what he wanted to do. I don't talk smack because I know when its go time, I better be able to back it up. Plus, I think all diesels are sweet. I am just particularly fond of Cummins. It just pisses me off that instead of saying, thats a badazz truck, or whatever, hes gotta act like his **** is 4 feet around and that his truck is the be all end all. His words literally were "Show me any Cummins and I will F his day up." No exagerations.

Thats what I was thinking. Except I think that the next weak link will be my clutch. And I won't be able to afford one for quite a while after this little escapade. I seriously spent my whole tax return and drew my account down to danger levels. But its worth it
