and what do you run in the 1/4 mile? i havent seen you post any time slips.

i was just saying, for a diesel to beat a gto, is a pretty big deal. and did tre state what z06 it is? because first of all, the c6 z06 is 11's stock, not tens. and if it was a c5, those are in the 12's. keep in mind this is all with a good driver. its totally believable that the duramax coulda beat a z06. on the street anything can happen.
On stock tires GTOs will rin midish 12s. I am sorry to tell you but I have had my share of Goat kills. You have no idea what is done to my car, or my kill list...and I like it that way. I ran mid 13s(.55-.65) with an intake and plenum on street tires. That was a year ago. That is with the sloppy Ford shifter. I do not list my power adders in my mod list for a reason...they change.

And yes C6Z06s run 10s with street tires. I will find the videos later, I am at work right now. With a horrible driver I see them go 11.3-6 all day long.

I am not denying that there are fast purpose built diesels out there. But C6Z06 fast is doubtful.

Why are we argueing about diesel vs mustang....WHERE THE HELL did the whole mustang even get involved in this thread? z06? Did it all start with 03bamaGT?
I just stated that they try and race me and my buddies all the time. And I have yet to race one that is worth a darn. Then tre and ty began looking around and finding things that could beat me or whatever. Saying well this could beat you, that could beat you, he beat this, I raced that, and so on. There is always someone faster.

I was just saying that I have not raced one that put up any kind of fight.

Because all in all......it takes more than just an intake, exhaust and chip to really get a diesel into the 13's. Some are gonna hate me, i'm on the 'typical stang owner's' side.

It takes twins, major head and block work, injection, air, etc to get a diesel pickup into into the 13's.

i'm done arguing. i started a simple thread and you had to start by posting that diesel owners like racing you. im pretty sure we don't care about that. the comment was not needed in the first place.

That was my first post ^^^.

Not very controversial I don't think.

Then as you read on...Lord of War or whatever and Jeweler made a few quotes...so how did I start this?

To break up the insanity this thread has become, here is a sneak peek of what I'm looking at:

I will enjoy it...thanks.

Such anger and hostility. It is a forum. Meant for talking about trucks and expressing our views and thoughts. You think different then me, that is fine. Don't think less of you. I am sure you are a great person. But I have posted facts. Later I will post my buddies 12.6 run out of his STOCK(to the tires) GTO, and a 10s run out of a STOCK with street tire C6Z06.

Edit-for the record I began this post before you wanted to 'move on'.

I bet I could beat both of those diesels in my Dodge.

Of course, I would be fouled because I would leave the line before the green light so I could get a head start and be in 3rd before either one even left the line.

I would also probably top out at about 80, because I'm scared to drive faster then that.

And considering about 60% of the time, 85% of the people at tracks have Mustangs, 45% of them will be racing the other 15% of the rest of the cars there.

Most of the time.....
