Impressive. Guy around here ran a 13.98 with a brand new Tundra 5.7l, stock down to the crappy paper air filter.

Wow, pretty fast for a stock a pickup. Do you know if that was with the 6spd or the 5spd auto?

It'd have to be the 6spd auto. I didn't see a time slip or anything, so I couldn't guarantee that time, but if it's true.. yeah, very fast for a stock pickup all-motor.

Very few of the cams have actually broken. None from our dealership that I know of, not sure if any that GST as a whole got. It wasn't some huge engineering defect for all the engines, it was a particular batch from a supplier.

And, FWY, the guy that supposedly did this with the tundra had traded in his domestic turbo-diesel with a shattered front axle, so :thefinger :hehe:

For which bed and cab? But anyhoo, without a time slip I wouldn't necessarily believe the 13.98. :shrug:

Edit: Found the review, it's the 5.7. BUT.. and this is a huge but.. it's a 4x4 double cab long bed that they tested. The regular cab 2wd is going to be a considerably lighter truck, so who knows what would happen in the 1/4.

Also folks, do some looking around. I found another 4x4 who has run 14.66 and is stock... did that at 93 MPH.

There was less then 1000 units that got bad cams. Toyota has gotten almost all of the owners tracked down. I was told by the local rep that if a dealership has one of the bad ones, a new engine is overnighted anywhere in the country! Now thats 1000x better then any of the domestics in terms of customer service on a known problem.

very true, they just keep making the same engine for 40 years.

These trucks even with the double cab long bed 4x4 5.7L can run high 13's, low 14's if the driver knows how to drive it, its got shift on the fly 4x4 so you launch in 4x4 and just keep in it after it shifts to second you take it out of 4x4, without letting off the gas, so it doesn't have the power loss of power the front tires. I'm betting in the reviews they didn't do 4x4 launches and had shitty 60ft times

Blackcloud

still slower... intake, exhaust, and a chip on a diesel can get you a few hundred extra hp. mine gave me 260 extra ponys.. do the same mods on a gas truck and you will be lucky to gain 50hp

And since you're barely faster than a stock Tundra with those 260 extra ponies..... well anyway, your truck is cool and does what it's made for very well, but you must admit that 5.7 is no joke ;)

Riiiight.. add a turbo to the gas truck and let's see what happens.

:ugh: that was before the extra ponies....

well while we are adding turbos lets add a 2nd one to a diesel and lets see what happens....


lol @ racing trucks
you just jealous because a 7000lb truck can leave you in a smoke cloud on the drag strip... i never said shit about the twistys

burnyd
09-29-2007, 05:41 PM
^^^ no not really I would be right where you are most likely with the power Im putting down compared to the tq you are making.


You have a motor thats 3x mine in displacement +!!!

turbo diesels are cool and all just not the greatest vehicle to make fast... trying to stop a vehicle that weighs 7000lbs going 120mph can be difficult.

Blackcloud
09-29-2007, 06:00 PM
i might have 3x the displacement, but i also have 3x the weight.

a diesel just won the 24hrs at lamans too. but you are correct.. it does take some time to slow down from that fast.. but they were not designed to even go that fast.


side note.. went out with some buddies last night and did some dirt drags. that shit is fun

Dude, it's not a diesel, it's a TURBO diesel.
Try adding 260 hp to a non turbo diesel.....
That's like me talking shit to a 2.5RS Impreza.....

With that said, them shits can be fast as hell.....

Oh and BTW, the 5.7 supercharger is coming soon...sure, it'll only be around 30% more power if you leave the kit alone, but it should still make them pretty tough.

Some of the Fords at least [power stroke] are NA [Naturally Aspirated-no turbo].
Most aren't, and I don't remember which years.
Within the past 20 though.

There's a reason diesels are pretty much all turbos. They make MUCH more power that way.

Not that I'm knocking diesels.
Part of the reason it's so easy to make huge power gains with a turbo diesel is the diesel engine instead of the gasoline engine.
Diesels like heat. Gas engines don't. Diesels and turbos are an awesome mix.
You said you're running 31 PSI?
There are VERY few REAL daily driver gasoline engines that will take 31 PSI all day....
And they are all aftermarket internals with alot of work.

But the turbo is also why.
Gasoline engines with turbos are very easy to mod as well.
You don't get the same power jump with stuff on an NA engine that you do on a FI [Forced Induction] engine.

It's just not really fair to talk about a turbo diesel making huge power compared to a NA gasoline engine.
That would be like if I compared Chevys V6 truck to the Tundra and called it weak because it didn't make the same power. Or wasn't modded as easily.
Now when Toyota comes out with a diesel [in the works] and if it's not moddable, I'm all with you. It will be pathetic.
Have to wait and see.

Ford had the non-turbo diesels in the early 90's, iirc. I'm pretty sure it was pre-powerstroke and they were indirect injection. They were dang slow and had no throttle response.

Blackcloud
10-07-2007, 12:12 AM
if toyota makes a diesel it will make good power... but its going to be interesting to see with all the new emission requirements. :(

Blackcloud
10-07-2007, 12:14 AM
and i dont know why you are arguing with me about this anyways... i know how gas, and diesel engines work..

im merely stating that its funny as shit that the tundra guys are saying they can out tow , and run faster then a diesel

Powerstroke didn't come out until mid 94. Before that they were indirect injected and weren't called Powerstroke.

hmmm. i'll have to check that i thought they were all powerstrokes.
