Re: 6.7 powerstroke vs camaro

Crew cab? Long bed? Short? I doubt it. The 6.7s are fast (esp. compared to what Im used to), but Im thinking the camaro is faster. But then again, I've been proven wrong before....

Shoulda bought a Cummins. May or may not have a cummins swap in the works.

1997 7.3L XLT, 4x4, 5spd, 307k, TS chip, 6637 filter, 4" straight piped dual exit

If you got a D60 or tan superduty/OBS seats PM me.

Re: 6.7 powerstroke vs camaro

Basically, there's no frickin way dude. Sorry, but it's not a fair comparison. Your Truck was not designed to beat a Camaro, it was designed to pull. It's like putting a body builder up against a track runner in a 100m dash. Have a look at this. These are rough numbers and I picked the high end of scale for both vehicles, so each vehicle was handicapped equally. Should be pretty close anyway.

2014 Ford f250: weight- 6,914lbs. horse power-400. (6914/400=17.3lbs per HP.)
2014 Camaro: weight- 4,374lbs. horse power-500 (4374/500=8.8lbs per HP.)

This means that:
Each horse power of your truck needs to accelerate 17.3lbs per second every second
Each horse power of the Camaro needs to accelerate 8.8lbs per second squared.

(Power = torque x rpm / 5252.)

See what you're facing? It's not a fair comparison.

Jamie.

p.s...I'm pretty frickin awesome!

Re: 6.7 powerstroke vs camaro

Also, why the hell do people chip their gas engines? Well, I guess I know why, and it will work a little bit, but only a little bit. It will not have nearly the same effect as it will in a diesel, which I am also not a proponent of. If I remember right, the ratio for best power is around 12:1 for gas I think. So that's a pretty small gap and the timing is already pretty far advanced these days. Basically, it seems like a big risk for such a small gain.

Then again, if ya had a small pecker, I guess ya would want it just that much bigger. That must be why people put these stupid cool air intakes and chips in their gas engines.

Not going to happen. The weight difference will kill you.

01 f-250, Standard
Rev tech 4" lift, 37" military wrangler Mt tires
KC diy 66, Full force 160/100 and custom tunes from PHP
Banks intercooler and full 4" exhaust, Diy S&B intake
Diy quad feed, Hydra, Isspro boost, pyro, and fuel pressure
3/0 battery cables with military style terminals

Re: 6.7 powerstroke vs camaro

Okay, run the numbers through the same equation.

6914/725= 9.5lbs per HP.
4374/425= 10.2lbs per HP.

Now we're talking. It's essentially even, assuming we have the weight right for both vehicles. So now where each engine makes its power is going to be a much bigger factor. Gas burns much faster, has less reciprocating mass, and shorter strokes. Meaning it revs quicker. Will that be enough? In theory it shouldn't matter, as the power to weight is now in you're favor, and more rpm= more total power for both engines equally.

I don't know man. Let us know how it turns out.

7800/725=10.5lbs per HP

It's dead even. Anybody willing to place bets?
