My buddy has an 06 chevy 2500 duramax/allison Z71 with diablo 65 hp tune. Did several 20 mph rolling starts. I could jump him by a length but then the turbo spooled up and walked away. This sucks. I was in D, probably could do better starting in a lower gear. Oh well.

I beat a stock D-Max, but I have a few more mods?

Please refrain from posting losses of this sort, as this DOES NOT help the morale of this here site. :D J/K

To be honest, if you race any diesel with a programmer, you are likely to lose. 80% of the Hemi's on this forum will lose. That is what happens when a programmer adds 65-150 HP and 100-230 ft/lbs of torque.

Race him stock vs stock and you'll take em. But you'll have to spend BIG BUCKS to keep up with a modded diesel.

My next truck will be a diesel for that exact reason. There easier to make fast, they last longer, get better gas milage, better for towing,etc.

Yeah, my step-father has a F350 with some work done to it and after riding in it several times I don't want to race him.

Diesels are for school buses!!! They're not supposed to go fast!!

That's the beauty of a turbo! Cummins is the only Dodge product with any aftermarket to brag about.
