Diesel trucks run turbos so a simple tune turns up the boost. That's all it takes with a turbo. He might give you a good run but unless he really knows what he's doing I'm guessing you can take him.

When you sit up there at 20ft from the ground on a tuned diesel truck the feeling is that it is a racing machine, especially launching on 4x4. I love diesels but they are not as fast as they feel. My stock 2010 was faster than my friends tuned fords and dodges.

I have an lmm duramax tuned with EFI live (stock,40,90,160,and 225hp) options from a 5 position switch along with K&N intake, FASS lift pump, sinister Cat filter upgrade, and 4" turbo back exhaust. The truck is fast for what it is but you need to remember a few things first....the power to weight puts him at a huge disadvantage. the amount of lag he will have on a stock setup will be astronomical, and his EGTs on a big tune will likely defuel the truck around the 1000' ft mark if not sooner. My dmax is fast but my 2010 ss stock is still quicker.

He will get you off the line for sure assuming he takes off in 4wd. Gotta be careful with diesels, I got walked by a cummins last summer and my car is FBO, decetn size cam, and ported heads. He ended up finding me on social media and told me the truck made something like 1300 tq. Would have never guessed by looking at it.

I have a '14 Duramax, and have spanked tons of kids in their cars on Woodward cruise nights off of the red lights. Nobody sees a 8000 pound truck coming when it beats them to 50-60 MPH. I never go past that, way too many cops around. Last year there was a kid in an M5 next to me...Revving at every light...So I rolled down the window and gave him the look...We took off and it wasn't close, I was far ahead. He got his hood to tow mirror by the end of first but when he went for second I gained more ground again and by the time he would have passed me, we would have probably been doing highway speed on a 45 mph road, closely watched by cops at 9PM on a Friday night.

If you car is a manual, you'd best prepare to lose until you get her moving good. If you're an auto, I see it being tight for the first 100-200 feet but then you walking away. Now if he goes deleted + tuned route, then he could easily be knocking down 1300+ TQ and may haul you for as long as he stays on it.

Hi,
Similar times to what a stock '10 Camaro has...interesting. Hopefully I can get my LTs and TB installed before we race ))

Not yet, he's in California and I'm in Indiana so hopefully this spring we can meet up. Also, just got my long tube headers and high flow cats installed and I'm getting a tune done in about a week. That should help me out some

Hopefully he doesn't care about his warranty. Brand new diesel and once he flashes the ECU he's toast.

Sorry to revive a semi-dead thread, but I'm curious about the outcome of this. I got a 2018 F250 diesel for work in June and I have to say these things are quick! If I'm on the highway and punch it, my phone sitting on the console is in the backseat before I can grab it. Off the line I would think my Camaro would get the jump (no power breaking or anything) but if we raced on the highway where the truck had some boost already, I think the truck might pull like the freight train that it is.

OP how'd the outcome turn out? Any races yet?

My cummins was just as bout 600/1000 at the wheels (bigger turbo injectors hopped up cp3 pump etc) and on the thruway it was a monster you could break em free at 70 but off the line not so much hard to build boost on a hand shaker with the single disc
