This was an obvious mismatch. :D I pulled up to a light and a black Ford Lightning was sitting there. I had a friend in the car and I said to him “I want to see this thing move.” So, I revved my puny 3.5 at him. He also had a friend with him. He looks over and laughs. The light turns green and I jump out of the box hard. He was a split second late on the light. I had him for about, oh, 3 feet and then he let it rip. That truck is bad ass. At the next light I gave him the thumbs up. He knew I just wanted to see his sweet ride in action. Damn, I am not sure my R/T could run with that beast.
:eek:
Doesn’t that truck run like a 14.5 or something???
:confused:

It seems that many web pages that I have come across say the stock 2001 Lightning does the 1/4 in 13.7-13.9!!!!!!!

A stock L will run low 13s easy. 13.2-13.4 is not uncommon. $500 in mods (smaller pulley, boost gauge) your deep in the 12s.

Ram SRT-10...I'm sorry, but that truck is going to be a $60,000 joke. $25,000 more than an L for A lousy 0.5 second better performance to 60 and 0.5-1 second in the 1/4.

The talking model at the Chicago Auto Show told me that the top speed of the SRT-10 is only 150 mph. I was amazed. I believe the new Viper is capable of 200 mph. The SRT-10 uses the same motor and tranny. It may be heavier and more boxy but it should go faster than that. Although, show me a stretch of road where you could get any car up to 150 safely.

Pardon my ignorance, but how does a boost gauge make you go faster?

Well of course it doesn't, but when you start tinkering around with higher than stock boost, its good to have a gauge to make sure everything is ok.

That's makes sense. I wasn't trying to be an ass. Just flaunting my lack of knowledge.
