ok a guy ik wants to race me with his 8.1 all stock he says he will wax me but i find this had to believe cause i raced a different 8.1 with my 99 5.3 and walked him to 70 by a truck lenght then up to 97 he had me by a half and that was no spining of either trucks.. and my duramax eats my 5.3 alive.. idk if that 8.1 that i raced was just junk or what but i was not impressed at all. it also had 4.10 gears and 90thousand miles crew cab short box i think it is a 02.. crew cab short box.. this one that wants to race my duramax is a ex cab short box 4x4.. what do u all think easy win for me or lose?? he also said i can leave my edge on level 4 also

yeah dont race pinks but duramaxbd03 is right as long you have a tuner.. tires might slow you down a tad, but the 6.6 has A LOT of power dont be afraid to use it lol

If you don't win, you should get your truck taken away :) I know a guy who could use himself a Dmax too. . . .

I've owned both, the 8.1 has no low end speed. You'll gain a lot on him there and stay ahead the whole way.

I just raced my old boss last week in his 496. We didnt go from a stop because that wouldn't be fair at all. We were on the highway and lets just say he was keeping up with my tow tune and but my daily driver embarrassed it. He has a programmer, intake, headers, duals and a few other things. I also owned one...for about 8 months.

Dont get too confident though, 8.1s have a lot of power, yet no low end torque, they can still beat a stock Dmax.

Yup. For a BB they like the rpms. I was surprised how well it kept up with me. Until I clicked the switch up one more notch. :cool:

One thing about the 8.1 that I absolutely hated was the gas mileage.

i usually keep my trap shut till i win other wise i look like a idiot when i lose.. unless ik for a fact its a win no matter what.. some kids that go to school with my little bro thought there half tons would win (like i said highschool kids). told him to take my truck to school the next day and bet them he came home with 100 extra dollars i took 50 and gave the other 50 to him. raced a chevy with a 5.3 and a ford with a 5.4
