I know a guy that drives a tiburon. He thinks it's the fastest thing alive.

Well that's not saying much. My truck with a worn clutch could beat a 318.

In my town ricers dominate the area. I get nasty stares when i drive around.

^^^ I approve!!!

For the summer, put some FAAAAT drag radials on it and have some fun. I actually have a model of that truck I built as a kid, cowl scoop, enormous rear tires, all that jazz. That's cool that it has the 5th wheel installed, get a bigass 3-4 car trailer and make some money hauling cars around.

Actually.....that's not a bad idea.....maybe I should do something like that.

6.5s are slugs. 200hp and 430lbs of torque. I have two model trucks of this truck, one in this color actually...

It looks like I'd have to upgrade the radiator, add some type of IAT cooling system, and relocate the PMD. Common failure points on the 6.5. I'm worried about the starter noise though. I dont wanna replace a flywheel

Slowness can be cured with ample doses of boost.

Actually, thats not the case on 6.5s...lol. Just got done reading a huge thread on them. Maybe it'd be better to wait for a cummins or have money for a dmax. Which sucks, I want a diesel...lol

It's an automatic, and he said the transmission is slipping and has no reverse... I like the price, but after a required manual swap and all of the aggravation, it's just not worth it to me.
