My Durango:
  • 4.7L
  • Superchips 87 Performance Tune
  • K&N FIPK CAI
  • NGK 2262 Plugs

Trailblazer SS:
  • 6.0
  • 395 HP
  • All Stock

I want to put this guy at my school in his place, what are my chances? I'm thinking about getting a TB from Dwight as soon as he gets more cores, how much will that help? Would I be better to start with a roll?

especially if his TBSS is the AWD model. The 4.7L V8 was only 235bhp.
There is an AWD in my subdivision - I haven't even bothered trying to line him up - that thing is pretty quick out of the hole......

you:
4.7l, 235hp, 295 ft-lbs
3.55 gearing?
4900 lbs
2wd?


him:
6.0l, 390hp, 400 ft-lbs
4.10 gearing
close to 4650 in 2wd drive models, 4800 in awd


it'll be ugly for you. no chance. unfortunatly sometimes those who talk big really do have the shit to back it up. fortunatly, it doesnt exclude them from practical jokes.....

About a snowballs chance in hell. I run one in my R/T a couple years back and she (yes she) got me outta the hole but I hung at her back bumper till about 90-100 when we shut it down. Put a 100 shot on it and you might not lose to bad.....

Won't happen man. I used to drive a AWD one. They're quick. 0-60 sucks though, a ton of torque management on those things. It's a good 20-100 truck. I used to beat everyone around here with that haha.

Seriously

These 4.7 Dakotas and Durangos are nice, manly, reasonably quick trucks in stock form with a good rumble and nice potential if you really work on them, but... what in the hell kind of crack are some people smokin.

"Dude in my neighborhood has a supercharged Z06 Vette nitrous... talks trash all the time... I got a power programmer, exhaust, intake, and gears on my 4.7 DAK...how close will it be???"

Be at terms with what you have. There are guys on here who've put some real money down and can put an awful lot of shit-talkers in their place. They've gone just a TINY bit further than plugs and FIPK.

:drive:

Aint a chance that you would beat a tb/ss. Trust me I know. Ive raced a reg cab 6.0 silverodo from a dig I kill him because i can hook. From a roll he pulls about 1-1.5 lengths and holds it of course I have a dakota and am alot lighter then you. Mine in street trim with me in it weighs 4200lbs.

Now this would be the perfect time to prank him if you had a Police Officer friend...

i ran a rwd version in '08 and he got me by a little more than car length...thats before the SC 3715 and shift kit but still had the FIPK, Head work, cams and manifold/TB work as well...killed him out of the hole but the mid range he had was so surprising...but i have seen a '09 Durango run a '06 real well.
