    My First WRX Kill with the Truck..

    WEll, i finally got the opportunity to race a WRX with my 6700lb Turbo Diesel Truck... its a 04 LLY Silverado extended cab 2500 HD.. It is my tow vehicle for my trailored mustang and it is my daily driver... well heres the story...


    I hear the rumble and the pshhhtt of a blow off valve in front of me, i also notice an sti wing on a standard WRX... Appearing mods are: BOV and Catback at least.. He had gauges in the car also... So i speed up next to him to catch a light, and there were 2 kids in the car, they look over and give me sort of a laugh... WEll i put the truck in 4wd, spool the turbo up, he starts revving the car up ready to launch, light turns and i immediately catch about a car on him, pulling to about a car and a half up to 90mph.. it was a great race and the kids looked at me dumbfounded like "WTF JUST HAPPENED?!?!" Anyway just thought i would share my story, its always fun surprising people with a big ol diesel truck

    My guess is the torque, those turbo diesels make. My buddy was just telling me how his uncle has a F350 and he smoked a WRX on the freeway. Which I believe but didn't think it would have a chance from a dig. I hear the "Banks" kit for the turbo diesels are sick, 4 wheel burnouts all day!

    Nice Kill!

    does he launch in 4wd???

    I have the late model LLY Duramax, which comes with a better turbo then pervious duramax's and almost 30 more HP Stock... I have a tuner set at 130hp, intake and exhaust (and 1 more secret mod! . My truck literally launches harder then my 400 awhp WRX launched, the torque just throws the truck forward like a friggen sling shot.... What the hell, ill give my secret away!!! Here is the trick... You launch the car in 4wd, then right after launch hit the buttom back to 2wd, then your motor is working less harder just spinning the back wheels and you gain a ton of midrange!

    Tricky . I like that. I never would have thought of that one. Next time I use my dad's supercharged Tacoma, i'll try that. Wait a minute.... oh well the truck doesn't have a 4wd button just the usual 4 lo, 4 hi, 2 wd shifter. Dang ... it sounded like a good idea though.

    I hate throwing my truck into 2wd from 4wd on the fly, especially with a load on the engine.

    I guess it's just me though.

    diesels are insane... any mod you put on, boosts the power by a ton... like on the chevy duramax, putting on new bigger injectors is like 150 HP(maybe more) and 250-300 torque... its crazy stuff
