twist a gassers tail that hard and get back to us on durable, especially after you tow houses all week in between racing on the weekend.

You may pay a bit more for maintaining a diesel, but having an engine that goes 500k miles or more, even with abuse, will pay for itself.

Plus it's awesome to see the look on a guy's face when your big F350 with mud tires just beat his corvette...

Really now. Price out a current gas engine from the last 3 years or so including R+R they are not that cheap either. Outside of what was done under warranty my "horrible " 6.0 gets oil changes and two weeks ago a coolant flush. NO repairs on my dimes just regular maintenance. Not bad for 115k and seven years

You want to brag about cheap maintenance.. what about fuel econemy? My diesel has payed for itself 3x over i bet just in what i save at the pump. Little comparison, 2003 6.0psd, 18-20mpg, CC,LB,4x4 99 6.8L triton 9-12mpg and half the power. and its a SC,LB F250, you need more? 94 7.5L 8-10 (if youre lucky).

Even with diesel being more, its still cheaper, more fun, and more power to drive. That is what most would call a win-win-win scenario.

And just for the record, i make peak tq at 2200.

Let me put this so its easier to understand for girl. Your ranger, assuming it has a v6, has give or take the same HP as a stock diesel, AND it weighs half as much. Yet, my diesel always wins.. ive raced plently of 3.0s and 4.0s, even owned a 2.9.

Soo.. what was the question again?

By time you rebuild a gasser 2-3 times getting to 500k, you could rebuild your diesel for free...

I own 300 inline six 4x4 20 mpg oh and your diesel is over a 5 k option over a gas and no stock diesel will ever catch a 4.0 ranger ever!!! But I dont use trucks to race im not a ricer. And if your talking about newer engines I know there all junk even your 6.0 that just went back under warranty

We're not going to have a gas vs. diesel argument here.

I would like to see any stock 4.0 ranger could keep up with a stock 6.0, 6.4, or 6.7 (400hp, 800lb-ft stock), or even a 7.3 Powerstroke for that matter.

And I get 20-21 mpg with my 16 year old, 191k miles F350 that weighs over 7000 pounds, with 33" mud tires, and is making over 325hp and about 700 lb-ft to the wheels.

Plus it can run on a variety of different fuels.

I like a good running truck. I like everything I own to run good. I don't race, but I wouldn't be opposed to taking my 02 down to the local track and giving it a try. Years ago I owned a 340 Duster that was quick. Never took it to a track though. When it comes to racing, race what you want. Car, truck, motorcycle, boat, even a horse if that's your pleasure! It's all fun!

Yep, I just want my truck to be dependable, run well, and be fun to drive. Taking it down the track every once in a while is just for fun, I'm not into serious racing. Just curious to see what it can do!

seriously...

back on track so to speak.

my exhaust came in and i was to excited to wait untill i ran just the traction bars so the last runs i got in were with both traction bars and my exhaust.

17.535 @80.88
17.334 @80.79


all my mph's are about the same because im reving out 4th gear at the quarter mile mark, when i go to a slightly larger diameter tire in the back instead of stock im hoping to fix that...

consistancy, not sure, i tried a bunch of stuff... those 2 passes were waste gate plugged in, and launching at 1000 rpm. (second yellow light i took my foot off the brake and reved it up, dumped the clutch and rolled into the throttle getting around a .1/.2 rt)

the other passes, with the waste gate unplugged were all over half a second slower, even with launching off idle, or power shifting it. all my 60' times were 3.0ish seconds except the 17.334 and 17.535 was a 2.7somthing. and my reaction times are getting better. theres less .5's and more .1's lol


so, i can feel the exhaust has added power, and the traction bars have stopped me from spinning in third, and took my wheel spin in second down to a nice bark. also, i can do a burnout without the truck shaking like a salt shaker lol, and launch at a higher rpm. i didnt take pictures because there unpainted, i was worried i was going to have to change there design, but its all ballistic fab 3" brackets with 9/16" hardware and poly bushings. i used 2" SCH80 pipe so its like 2.5" od and the bars are about 80" long.

so in all it was a good day, got in early and had 6 passes over like 2 hrs. guess the next step is a tuner and ill see what i get... probably need to work on fuel. maybe i'll do the pickup tube screen delete thing i saw.

Sweet Deal! I'm still trying to find time to make it out to the track...

I really need a limited slip rear and traction bars on mine, and an upgraded HPOP. The stock one can't keep up with my Stage I injectors at WOT.

Sounds good, any plans for a wheel /housing when ya get the tuner? Talked to a buddy of mine with a 96, he has an edge, 5",(the rest im not 100% on that i remember it right) 110 sticks 1.0 housing and some sort of wheel, he is running high 15s he claims. SCLB 4.10s w/ 285s

Sorry for helping the derail, just get kinda annoyed when people assume theyre right when clearly not. To get my last word in.. The only reason there is still gasoline engines is due uptight and over-stringent emissions. Every vehicle that has a gas and diesel option, the diesel ALWAYS gets more mpg, and typically more power. 300/6 gets 20mpg because its inline, and has gobs of torque. Drop in a 5.9 cummins and get 25+ with twice the power.. literally, and stock even. Sorry mods / OP rant over.
