A couple buddies of mine put a duramax in an impalla that kicked out 800hp and ran the 4th mile in ten sec flat so dont tell me that diesels cant do shit
Doubtful!!!! Lets see who can tell the biggest lie. I've got a couple buddies who put a duramax on a craftsman mower. They can mow about about 25 acres an hour.

Power was in the older trucks with ford 460 or chevy 454. If they had these same motors fuel injected and the in new trucks, nothing would out pull them.

As much as I hate to disagree with someone that has a fine name like yours, I gotta say; if they made big block ls engines, it would help a little... But idk if it would ever be as efficient as the diesels. They are here to pull and they brought their a-game.
A long stroke big block LS with forced induction is the only way to go to even try to compete. Even then my expectations for something with those torque numbers is pretty hard to compete with.

They did make the big block in the Chevy fuel injected it was a 8.1 which is a 502 replica available through 2002-2008, what a gutless wonder this was just like the old 460 ford and 454 Chevy.

<quoted text>4k for twins huh? Well why don't all of the guys around here have twins because they obviously have the money(;

Bradley if this is you, your the only one who did pay for their truck & I respect you for that.
Ya dumbass 4k for twins. Its called a mild setup using the stock turbo along with another one. And the reason noone has one is because 4k is expensive to put in just turbos. And fuel upgrades are free up to say 450 hp on a ppumped 12valve.

Yea bradley did buy his own shit. But there are several more of us that do to.

Actually just so you all know you can put COMPOUND turbos on a cummins for $2800. That's not including the headstuds obviously or labor. You don't put twins on diesels..... And you don't need compounds to have a fast truck, they are just nice to help keep things cooler. A silver bullet 66 will support over 700hp. The majority of kids that romp black smoke all around Rolla have nothing more than a programmer. I can think of a couple trucks that where actually built the correct way that would actually be something worth takin about on here....

You can put twins on a diesel stupid ass. If you didn't no there are v8 diesels that can easily accommodate twins... Pardon my grammar for calling compounds twins since your not smart enough to make the connection. And you can do what you want with yours but when you sink twelve grand in just a truck with no mods others tend to take care of their rigs.

I can promise you every single red cent spent on my truck was with MY money. I'll agree there are some spoiled kids in this town, and I apologize to the kid who started the forum for the ignorance that has taken it over, but the fact is, most of us who have diesels bought them to be able to pull our cattle and horse trailers while still getting decent fuel mileage. Also, my truck is hardly ever clean. I do construction for a living, so I work out of my truck. I understand someone disliking diesels, but like everything, there are pros and cons for owning one. Since I own a bike myself, I think it's extremely rude to ever "smoke someone out" on a bike, but just because a diesel smokes a little bit, and I understand some kids do it to an annoyingly excessive amount, doesnt mean it's not tuned right or isn't producing big power. This argument over how stupid diesels are or how great they are is ridiculous. If you don't like them, I suggest never owning one. Pure and simple.

Also, 08 powerstrokes came twin charged from the factory, so twins really isn't that unheard of. Wide-open diesel is actually making a triple charger kit nowadays.
