So I'm tired of everybody saying that this guys 6.0 power stroke is the fastest truck ever... i want to put him to shame what else can i do for cheap cause I'm in high school and money doesn't come easy. Also when I'm on level 5 and I take off full throttle it seems to cut out a little. Would this be a cause of not enough fuel? Do I need a lift pump? I was thinking about getting the hot unlock but if i don't have enough fuel it would be pointless. The only thing the other guy has over me is water/meth injection and 35's.... I want to smoke him before schools out :lol3:

How cheap are you talking? I would advise a lift pump and torque converter in general. Possibly an MP-8 or something to stack with the edge. Shoot me a PM if you don't want to post up how much your looking to spend.

I would say your first things should be a lift pump torque converter & valve body. And than start thinking about more power. In the mean time have him come out hear and ill run him:peelout:thumbsup

Well I think I'm going to order the hot unlock and look into buying a lift pump. Are the Raptor lift pumps good or should I spend the extra $100 to get the Airdog? I have a friend that has some stock tires i bet i can get him with those on lol. As soon as I get out of school and work full time then il buy some tranmission upgrades cause they are so damn expensive!!

the hot unlock is well worth the extra 100 or so dollars believe me. but i reccomend getting a lift pump. an airdog maybe.
then you might be able to run him.
however dont add any more power before you get a good torque converter or you will be spendin alot of money fixing the tranny.

Thats what I'm scared of. I don't have the money for the tranny right now... I would be spending a good $2000 dollars for a tourqe converter and valve body wouldn't I? Plus somebody to put it in for me.

you can get a dang good torque converter for about 1400. i would say that your tranny work will be about 2700 for invincibility. thats about what mine cost, and i got alot of horses.

If you don't upgrade that tranny soon your truck won't be going anywhere. You may just want to save for that and postpone this race.

Heck, while your saving for that TC & VB just challenge him to a boxing match, beat him, and no one will care that his truck is faster because you beat him down.

Yah he is like a little over 5' haha considering that I'm 6'4" that would be to easy lol
