^^^ gonna have to agree with Harry on this one... I had a duramax before my jeep and its hard to tell a 13 second diesel from a 11 second one...

They sure are fun though!

What do you think cost wise would need to go into one for that power. A 18 yr old college kid cant afford one unless mommy or daddy helped. But id at least give him the benefit of a doubt next time i see him and ask questions. He left the parking lot today in "his gf's jeep liberty"

Depends on what year. Cummins are easy to get power out of. Hell, 250hp tune, injectors, propane or N2O, turbo, maybe twins, tranny, studs and you could be there easily. Only one way to find out if he's full if shit or not.

iv got a buddy with 40k+ under the hood of his race dmax that puts down over 1000hp and more torque then you could imagine. their expensive to get to that level but plain nasty when you get there. also he has problems out the ass with his. like stated before, you can't do much before you tranny starts to slip so if he has a tranny then you might be worried, if not he is bluffing.

Its just convenient its in the shop and he doesnt drive it in the winter lol i kept prying at him ask if he ran it at the track he said no. I asked if he dyno'd it and he said before he had work done was 600 + hp. Kinda makes me wanna find another to run against in the area tho jus for fun

Yeah sully if this guy is making 800hp and has a built trans your in for it. Is the diesel in question auto or manual? 4x4 or 2wd? Lifted or stock? Find out what turbo (size and brand name) he has with 800hp he should have twins. Any way you could get a sneak pic of the truck? What year is it?
