    if your STI isnt modded, be careful.

    I have a buddy with a new one with mods and it will do 0-60 in about 5 seconds. They also make a twin turbo kit for them that makes unbelievable power. Granted they weigh somewhere near 8000 lbs, but they can be fast if modded. if it is stock, i wouldnt worry about it, but if they put a box on it and a few other things, it makes a world of difference in some of those trucks.

    I will call him to see what he runs in the 8th or quarter mile.

    you could always do a 0-100-0 run. it may be easy for him to hit 100, but 8000lbs doesnt stop very quickly.

    Propane and NirousOxide are used together on many performance diesels. nitrousoxide=more air : propane=more fuel. Didn't anyone watch that "Trucks" episode on Spike last year? very cool stuff.

    those duramax arnt anything to mess around with after the person sticks about 4k into the engine. But stock you will win. I swear on my cobra there was one at the local strip that ran a 10.5 after he built it up a bit he had propain injection then nitrous then he had the biggest turbo that banks made at the time and he had a level 6 banks six gun engine management. that truck was rediculous i thought it would run liek a 13 or so built liek that. I almost shat in my pants when i seen that thing go down the track in a giant ploom of black smoke.
    Tomorrow isn't a guarantee.

    Depends on the chip and and if by chip he means supporting mods with the chip.

    I've got a friend with a turbo diesel F250 that puts car legnths on bolt-on C5 Z06's.

    That was a good show, unfortunately I cannot remember one thing about it since I see a big fat azz everywhere I look. Very nice.

    On a side note...

    Cummins?
    Duramax?:
    Powerstroke?

    Subtle, those automakers. They'll shed all pretense with their next big diesel, simply calling it "throbbing cockmaster"

    Diesels can make big power. Remember, horspower doesn't mean much, it's all about the torque. And diesels lay the smack down when it comes to torque.

    BUT.. any of the big diesel trucks are going to need quite a few mods to even think about keeping up with an STi. With the exception of just a few hardcore truck 'racers', for the most part these guys think getting into the 13's is FAST. On the diesel performance forums, you see "What do I need to get into the 13's?" threads all day long.

    If you see a late model truck pouring black smoke, then it's got a box or ECU tune on it. A little black smokee can be had stock, but this is something the diesel guys also laugh and brag about. Note: If you ever do decide to race a diesel, make sure your windows are up, there's nothing that turns some of these guys on like filling your 'rice burner' with thick black smoke.

    Don't underestimate a diesel, at 50 pounds of boost they can definately surprise you.... but it sounds like the guy in the Duramax is underestimating the STi, it's not just another 'rice burner'

    the guy at work is running at about 45lbs of boost, among about $30k in other mods, including transmission. nearing 1000 ft lbs at last dyno. It is a duramax 3500 dually.

    most of them wouldnt be able to handle an STI, but every once in awhile you might run up on one that has had a lot of work done that could get an sti, but odds are they are faster than the local civic guys and think the STI is that caliber as well and just dont know better.
