    no thats not what i was talking about i was talking about gas v8
    you have to compare apples to Orange's:nono:

    the chevy is a 300 hp stock and fords largest gas v8 only has 260hp stock if you want more in gas you need to go to a v10 310 hp

    Well If it's apple's to apple's
    the chevy 6.0 is a little bigger then the 5.4

    The Ford 5.4 does have a 3 valve version that is in the F-150
    that has 300 hp ? it will make it's way in the SD's in 05

    Ford also has a V-8 (5.4) in there GT that puts out 500 hp thou

    That was me that posted 325hp stock 6.0l Diesel V8,zero gas cosumption,nada,18 mpg town driving,20+ highway,not bad for a 7300 lb truck,lets see a gas burner do that,this thing can melt the tires off if i want it to,and leave a v10 eating dust from a standstill.Apparently you cant read,seeings how it's in all my post.As for FORD wanting to copy chevy,not likely,they've allready got them beat.

    I don't get it ?

    first the front ends
    Fords are a live axle with leaf springs not a IFS
    In 05 the SD's are going to be a coil w/live axle not a IFS

    now the hp
    I'm sure that 6.0 is a nice motor but it's not the highest rated small block either

    But they would have to lower the truck to make it a Chevy
    now wouldn't they.

    there both nice rigs, Apple's and Orange's

    :waving:

    dam at first i had a flash back of when i owned one of them in 02 but then i realized you only had a regular cab

    and i was talking about gas motors in that thread if i was talking about diesels that would have been another topic

    i knew there was only a 260 hp because i tried to get them to match chevy when i got stupid and bought that truck they wanted me to go to the v10 and that thing is a gas hog of hogs one of my friends has it and he is trading it in this year for a chevy

    and just because i have to you know durimax with that Alison trans is number one in its class no body can beat that hp ,quiet i just have no more to say ford will i guess try to match that also :gunsfiring: :D

    How is that now?Duramax/Chevy puts out 310HP,,,,,6.0L International/Ford is putting out 325 now,rumours that will soon go to 350-360.
    The allison is a good tranny,but this all new torqueshift has it beat.
    You really need to get your facts straight.
    Would also be nice if you either,, learned how to spell,or,at least use the spellcheck,your posts look like an 8 year olds.

    you guys are starting to sound a little ridiculous. Seriously, if you're happy with what you drive then there is no reason to give someone else crap about what they drive and what they like. Brand loyalty runs deep for sure, but give everyone a break.:rolleyes:

    Wasn't meant to start a war,I just can't stand it when people have their facts wrong.
    Like they say ,you can lead a horse to water,but you cant make him drink.
    But i guess in this case he does plenty of that.
    With that said,im outa here.:waving: :waving:
