Today, after snowboarding, I had a Chevy diesel pull up next to me at a light. It was lifted and had some good looking tires on it. I gave it some go juice off the line just to let him see how fast WRX's actually are.

Well his Chevy had some go juice of its own and it beet me off the line. It then proceeded to make a mockery out of my full throttle attempt to match his acceleration. My car was no match for this truck. I let off and admitted defeat. It made me smile actually. It was quite a spectacle to see that with just a little bit of turbo love a truck can be transformed into monster like that.

I guess it says something about Utah too.

I've seen some of those trucks run 12s at the track.

Diesels start with locomotive torque. There are EM devices that make them very quick for 5k - 6k pound truck. The 5.9L Cummins turbo diesel can be a beast.

Yeah - there's really only two levels of turbo diesel mods. The first bunch has an intake and tune of some sort, and maybe a full 4 or 5 inch exhaust. That's quick as it is, putting a 7k+ lb truck into the 13s.

The others have gone for the Full Monty. They've got propane/meth injection, a huge turbo, built tranny, and are loaded for bear. Those are the real barn burners.

I couldn't justify the expense of a turbo diesel for what I do so I had to make do with just a Hemi. It's got a nice mod path too but it's twice as hard when you own two money pits!

I agree the Cummins is an awesome engine. Both of my vehicles (see Sig) are bone stock, but plenty powerful for me. I drive over them Alleghenies and the Cummins never drops out of overdrive unless I am at a stoplight. I only need to apply a little more pedal when on the hills to maintain the speed. I have not had the WRX up there yet, but from what I can tell, it will not be bothered either.
