Merchant's Spring Fling

Last year we had Nasty Girl ( Keith ) make 1026 ( i think) horsepower.. i know it was over 1000. This year i know there is going to be alot more trucks. including mind ( whatever i have done to it by that time ) and the surprise were bringing there.

So here's my question

Which motor do you think is going to have the highest HP and highest Torque?? Think anyone is going to beat Nasty Girl's Hp numbers??

I think a Dmax will take top honors again this year, but it'll be very very close.

I think it will be a DMax. I also think it may be in a pulling truck

I gotta say Dmax, I mean face it, you are going to be at a Duramax/Allison specialists place. Along with most of the trucks he has worked on and built.

And what makes you think Keith wont try to break his own? If I had a truck like that with the money he has invested, I would keep going for more.

BTW, thanks to Keith and all those like him with any of the Big 3 that continue to raise the bar and keep this more than just a hobby, but more a passion!

i think keith is going to break his own... im sure he has something up for this year.. i know there is going to be a very very sick cummins there this year.. even though you guys dont know about it.. its just something to think about.. and if we add nitrous or water.. who knows what the numbers are going to be

Keith has a very sick truck. I dont know how much more he can do to that truck.. im not a duramax guy..

The fun is the only thing that matters, but keep in mind that Keith only runs #2, no drugs! So everything that he puts down is pure fuel, which is impressive in my book, but I know there are some Cummins out there that lay down some darn good number on #2 only also.

I think it would be cool to have a #2 only competition, then an all out HP/TQ.
