Default Hemi Vs 2011 cummins

So I went to the local dyno I was the only gas truck there, everyone had diesels. The Cummins where putting down crazy numbers. my buds 2011 put down 500+hp 900tq. I had wanted to dyno but felt like the special child with everyone watching... but ended up doing it anyway. 288whp 314tq...not what i was looking for but ill take it.

Then the shit talking started. whipped out the phone and started to do some numbers. what they didnt know was my power to weight is almost equal to them. Raced my bud at a 40roll dang thing didnt down shift so we were dead even for a bit then at 60 he pulled 1 1/4 truck on me and i just stopped. 2nd roll was at a 30roll. I knew it would down shift right this time. i pulled him right away about 1 truck till about 115mph where he passed me and kept a good 1 1/4 truck on me till about 140mph.

I will most likely start my build list soon, adding a nice holset turbo to wake the hemi up.
