Default 6.4, turbo eclipse, and a crotch rocket

Went cruising tonight. We have a few like stretch in town that all the kids with daddy money and all the turbo 4 bangers like to go stoplight to stoplight on. So I pull out of chilis and decided to see how I stack up with this crowd. 1st lap a 6.4 hammers it when he's already halfway past me so I do the same and I would passed him but being the nice person I am I let him over instead of him crashing into the barrier lol then he gets behind me at the next light and a bike is next to me. Some kinda crotch rocket maybe a 600 so I watch the lights and boost it in 4wd and launch the thing. I look over and I'm keeping up with the bike (I'll bet he wasn't hammering it tho) so at the next light the kid on the bike is yelling nice truck man! Then next lap a turbo 2nd gen eclipse is right on my tail so he finally gets lined up to me. Boosted launch and rocket in front of him. Same for the next 3 lights. I figure I'd give him a chance. Turn it down to my DD tune. 2wd but tow hall on. I take off like normal and he spools and hammers it so I do the same. Flew by him againI let off around 70 and he flies by me and don't see him again.

Not as cool as some of yalls stories but hey it makes me feel good to know all the blood sweat tears and money I've put into this thing got me somewhere. I'm proud of it. Hope everyone else had a good night!

I've been weary of 6.4's
I've seen them run poorly and I've also seen them run good. I personally fear a ford more than a dodge any day of the week because H&S and SCT don't f*ck around! Thumbs up!

Around here I don't fear too much honestly. Very very few people have trucks that are actually fast. Most are just tuned trucks that 17 year olds drive with forces. But yeah 6.4 are the only ones I'm iffy on. 6.7 and 6.0 aren't really too quick.

I don't know about those 6.7's being slow, my friends old 12' would give me a run for my money, I'd still get him but I had to earn it.

Not that they're slow all the time. But I'm sure a fully loaded and lifted ccsb even tuned wouldn't be too awful fast

My 6.7 is faster than my last 2 stock trans max effort tuned duramax's. And it's not much if any slower than my max effort ZF6 lly was. 15+ are no slouch.

What I mean is, put next to my truck I'm not really worried about them. Yes they're no slouch. But even so I haven't seen anyone around here with a 6.7 that's truly quick. Lost are just prettied up

Only a select few will run with a built trans duramax, but.... the Pistons last longer than 100k so I'm sold.

honestly that's one reason why I'm not sold on LBZ/LMM engines. I've heard too many stories about the pistons. I honestly love my lb7. If o get another truck it'll be a 6.4 or a LML. I just love my truck being kind of a sleeper.

Seen my fair share of Swiss cheese lml pistons too. And if you don't like your odds with an lbz/lmm then I'd definitely steer clear of a 6.4.

6.4's can be a force to be reckoned with. There is a regular cab running around here that I don't want any part of. But they are also known to eat pistons and score blocks.

The 6.7s can move out also with very little work. A lot of the local guys are swapping 2015+ turbos on the older ones and they run decent also.

But as far as cars go and racing them. No one wants to play with me anymore around here. Kind of sad really.

6.7's are some pretty mean engines, but I'd rather take my chances with some pistons over driving a ford.

Sorry, I work at a metal recycling center...aka junk yard. I've literally crushed them all 😁

Not many people wanna play with me. I'm kinda the unicorn. I show up once in a blue moon and hurt them then disappear I don't think I'll ever get another truck but if I do the dream is a scsb 02 Chevy. And the 6.4 are sweet truck but you're right they have their issues. I'd get one just for a change tho. Main reason i don't like the LBZ and LMM is everyone has them. I like different stuff. Almost no one has an 01/02 here.

I'd rather drive a ford than do engine work every few years, I'm driving a for now that's outlasted a Chevy 6.0 and two duramaxs, kind of ironic, lol.

Reger has a point. I honestly don't believe anymore that one brand is better than another. EVERY vehicle has its issues and it's strong points.
