so I raced my buddy's truck the other day and got :eek:wned. his truck was an '02 single cab 4x4 7.3 with a 6 speed, 34 inch all terrains, and and edge programmer. also 100K miles and stock intake and exhaust.

I kind of assumed that my DP, 6637 intake, and straight pipe would run circles around my buddy's truck so now i'm a little dissapointed:bang.......what do you guys think.

Is your truck an early 99? If so, that will make a difference since you have smaller injectors and a smaller HPOP.

If not, then something is wrong with your truck... or he just knows how to drive a manual better than you :D

no my truck is a late 99. i do have 200k miles on mine though.

Ever since i got my DP i always thought it could be tuned better, do you think that could be a possibility?

As far him driving a manual better :haha

(and i guess he didn't smoke me persay but he did beat me none the less)

If he has 4:10's or 4:33's he will smoke you every time.

Your both within 10hp or less of each other... I doubt he "walked" you... Was this on the street or at the track? Not that I care, but there is a big differance between a heads up street race and a drag.
