    That was a great video. Helped that Speed Phenom didn't talk that much... I thought the tear down would be of a tracked and well used motor tho and not a new one.

    I just started a YouTube channel so hopefully I can start posting videos soon.
    First ones will just be racing my car and diesel trucks.

    No thanks. I don’t like Duramax.
    I am a Powerstroke guy.
    I have a built 7.3 obs crew cab that is almost as fast as my 5.0

    I used to be entirely a GM guy but I've become nonbiased. My duramax runs low 10s and with some suspension work might could dip in the 9s but since I'm getting the new gt500 I've decided to sell it! Nothing like running a hellcat redeye and gapping it in a 3/4 ton truck. I have big plans for the car though.

    That is very fast.
