    wrx vs chevy 2500 turbo diesel

    would that be a bad idea? Its a chipped diesel with about 500hp but im not sure what kind of power it has (not towing power). im stock right now, but i've got a cbe and an intake comin. any chance? howbout a stage1 roush mustang(body kit)? i think i can pull it off but i dont know enough about those two to have a guess. any help would be good, apparently my car's the new one to beat at school. ha!

    Depends on whats actually done to the duramax... They are very very very quick with injectors and chipped. Most likely the Duramax will walk you BAD on a roll.

    To put it into perspective, a chipped Duramax 4wd with 39.5's on it walked my buddy's 5.9 R/T with some work.

    The roush will destroy you as well.

    You don't have a race car..

    How about you just don't race anyone from your school, ok?

    If I were you, I would let them continue to think that and not race. At least not until you have some mods worth while. That duramax will kill you ha

    the duramax will have you from start to finish, and will be waiting for you at the end. trust me on this, i program them, and build them everyday.

    the mustang on the other hand might be a closer match...

    the 03-04 cobras are going to stomp you and if it has any mods at all your going to be left 1 mile behind
