i dont think u would b close with the v8 tb and the rest of ur mods. u would need some rr and intake manifold work, mayeb even sum 390 gears. our trucks run 17's stock :( those things will def see 16 sec time slips, the 6.0 has good power. im just being realistic, but who cares run him and tell us the outcome!

well he dose sometimes on empty roads (we live out in the boonies when i visit my parents i talk motors with my dad) i used to race him in his 95 f150 cc with a 302 and spanked him all the time.
Maybe il try anyways you never know i might get a better launch or maybe i will wait untill i get true catback headers and 1.7 ratio rockers maybe then i will stand a chance.

i wont even dare think of racing his car 72 cutlass 350 performance intake holley 750 double pumper 350 turbo tranny w/shift kit he would blow my doors off LOL oh well I can always dream of the day when my dak grows 2 more cylinders ;-)

if it wasn't an HD i would say it might be close, but I have drove my dad's HD, and just touching the gas pedal lightly will show some good strong power.

So with his modded one, i don't think you would even hold a candle to it. But like everyone said, its worth a try, but just cause it says HD (Heavy Duty) doesn't mean it weighs alot, it just means its got the tools to haul ass with even the heaviest load.

Go with that, he said he could beat you while pulling, so do it. He made the wager! "hope its a little camper"
