my 3.9 > chevy's 5.3

so i was heading home to get something to eat and i get to red light next to this guy about my age in an 04 chevy and he asked me what i had and i told him "its justa little ole six." i ask him and he says he has a 5.3 v8. well he didnt believe me for some reason when i said i had a 6 and i told him i was goin right up the road to get something to eat and i would pop the hood over there and show him. but he just kinda nodded okay. so i asked him if he wanted to see what it could do against that v8 and he told me "okay, thats cool." so we go, get pretty much equally good launches with little wheelspin and his front tire was at my back tire until about 60, after that i slowly walked away.

0-85 i had about 1-2 cars on him. when i let off at around 85 he did the flyby and i couldnt even tell him "good race" or anything like that.


does anyone know what those trucks run?

just wondering b/c my friend's cousin said his ran a 15.1. but i find that hard to believe.

Standard cab, extended cab, supercrew? Long wheel base, short wheel base? They're fairly quick engines...for a truck.
