vs. ford lightning

Got a truck wanting a battle. I hear its modded, so my question is what race will I have best chance. Roll or dig?

Really depends on the mods...they can run the gammut of times depending on the mods. They are basically an automatic less aerodynamic and heavier GT500. THey run well into the 13's stock

I ran one with my stock ss he had intake tune and ported supercharger and I still pulled well on him from a roll. He has done more work now but I've added alot of hp since then so it's not even worth it to him now lol

Actually it is nothing like a truck version of a GT500. The 5.4 was a SOHC vs DOHC, made anywhere from 120-140 less HP than a GT500, and as stated where automatic only. Stock they ran anywhere from high 13s to mid 14s depending on year. Tock one should be easy meat for an SS, once modified though, all bets are off.

I really hope your not talking about "SSTHIS" .....

It all depends on the mods of that lighting, but from a roll the camaro probably win.

Old gen Lightning or second gen? The gearing in the first gen made them a monster off the line if they get traction (4.10 gears) but they petered out quickly without a laundry list of mods. If it's a second gen, it's difficult to say without knowing what he's had done - quick trucks but require a considerable amount of work to be truly fast.

My 1995 Lightning ran 15 flat at 87 (stock) - my 2001 ran 13.7, but I forget the mph (stock). Never did get to run the 95 after the torque convertor and other minor mods - nor did I get to run the 2001 after intake and exhaust.

From a dig, the 95 was a monster to 2nd gear, then it fell on it's face. The 2001 pulled hard after 2nd gear.

depends on mods on lightning really. If its close to stock you should have no problem, if it has a nice list of go fast goodies it could be a good race or he could blow you away if he gets traction. IT really depends on what the Lightning has done

I mean as far as easy mods to add HP. And my 2003 ran a best of 13.52 @ 103 stock and all I added was a tune and mufflers an ran a 13.1 @ 107. If its stock OP you should be able to walk away.

Look under the hood. If you see a factory Eaton then you have a good chance from a roll. If you see a KB or Whipple then I hope you got a mod list of your own because if you don't then you might as well not even try.

As mentioned, it would be impossible to know without a mod list for the Lightning.

Stock vs. stock you'd tear him up. But most L's are modded and many are quite fast. I had a friend with a heavily modded one that was ridiculously fast.
