Maybe Ralph will give us an SRT8 diesel. They can call it the "Sooter edition". Bring back the center exhaust and you can soot out anyone!

I got destroyed by a dude with meth injection. Was like a 2010 or so stock looking gmc 4 door diesel truck. His wife was in the front and his 2 kids in the back. He walked away like I was driving a fiero. I have a wk2 btw... Ouch

Really!! 800hp on a Dodge usaually means compound turbos. Even with the biggest turbo 800hp is hard to get. Then you'll need upgraded fuel system, larger injectors. And this is BIG money.
You say he has no trans work? Then no way can he put 800hp to the ground that trans will explode especially if he does boosted launches.
I csll BS on this guy.

There is a 7.3l in my area making upwards of 1000wheel with compound turbos, water and nitrous. Runs 6s in the 1/8mi. I was king of the trucks at cruise night in the Jeep until I lined up with him. I'm familiar with the truck so I knew I was doomed. Oddly enough he stated right next to me the whole run and just barely beat me. Wasn't until the end of the race I saw all of the white smoke coming out of his stacks. Something went very wrong for him but he still won the race with half as much power as he usually makes. I helped him look for the problem and offered to help fix it, but I really wanted a closer look at what was under the hood. Real basic stuff. The ingredients are simple, some stuff costs more than others, but the recipe is the same. The more air you can cram in it the more fuel you can burn the more power you're going to make.

Some of these guys are running triple turbos for quick spooling, high boost ability and lower EGTs. EGTs are the main problem in these trucks followed by fuel delivery. The older trucks just aren't made to pump a gallon of fuel a second, lol.

Diesels are no joke! This is a guy I know and his truck is street driven......

Come to Alberta if you wanna see some fast diesels! I loved my jeep and the 440 but my cummins owns my heart + the fact my 440 couldn't keep up with 90% of the diesels running around here.
