Today I was on my way back from a local archery shop and I saw this nice looking blue cummins with his blinker on to go left at an intersection. As soon as he looks over and see's my truck he flipped his blinker and goes right on red to follow me. As we come up on a straight stretch he floors it and tries to pass me. I flipped the DSP switch and turned up the heat on his @ss and murdered him by god knows how many truck lengths. I talked to him at the gas station afterwards and he said his clutch was going bad lol. He told me it was a 2001 24v 5spd with 100hp injectors, quadzilla adrenaline, and a bd turbo,lift pump etc..He asked what I was running and looked confused when all I said was EFI Live. I thought this would be a good race by the amount of smoke pouring out of his single stack. I mean my truck isnt lacking in black smoke but its unreal how much a cummins can smoke. I'm a cummins fan but there just wasnt even a comparison here. :cool:

Nice! I smoked a Cummins about 2 or 3 weeks ago from a stand still at a red light as well. I was pretty happy. Cummins can throw a ton of smoke as well, but it's mostly because they're manual and the guys just launch them.

True that, I know quadzillia programming is pretty dirty too...At least my old stealth II was.

In his defense if his truck was like my old one (which it sounds pretty close) it had 3.53 gears. I did alot of work to my cummins but until I dropped some gears in it all it did was roll a bunch of coal. Put 4.11s in it and it would roll but you really had to be able to bang gears to even keep up with my mild dmax that i have now (and NO it can't keep up, it just made it a better race).

I know same here when I had my straight piped 1500, it was like everyone wanted to race. I dont get a lot of opportunities now

Thats actually a good point. I'm not saying all cummins are slow. I know of a TT 12v that would rape my truck :rof

I love how all cummins guys with quick trucks have a ten page list of mods and then a duramax that is equally as fast has like 4 mods at most!

i agree it is kinda fun every once in a while to blow a big puff.. but the longer i have the truck the more i wish it didn't blow as much, it draws attention, bad for diesel reputation, and i just think it's badass when you see a big power tune that's really clean. JMO

What is awesome about cummins is you can do a turbo, cp3, and injectors in an evening easy. Try that on a duramax!
