What have you blown away??

Just smoke one of those supercharged Ford Pick-ups the other day. Not even close. It was the Harley Davidson version with the blown 5.3L V8 (340HP).

I'm dying to smoke some yuppy punk in a BMW as I chomp on my Cohiba.

BTW, has anyone measured thier 0 - 60 time? The reviews are all over the place ranging from 5.3 seconds all the way up to 6.1 seconds. I have no idea what the "norm" is among production cars.

As soon as I rack up 500 miles I'll be able to give you a real world 0-60 time.

I just sold my 03 HD F150 and I would think that it would be pretty close. Dont get me wrong, Im glad and happy for you

They are two different kinds of fast; the HD puts you back in your seat more but the 300c is a very smooth fast.

Congrats!

Still A Fan!

We have both the 300C an the HD and ........

I can tell you that the 300C will not "blow away" the HD.

In fact I have been driving the car for a week and just got in the truck this evening. The butt dyno tells me that the truck has more power.

I'll have a full on test between the truck and the car soon.

For the record the truck really moves out. The HD trucks contain an F150 lightning drive train. The only difference being the HD uses a different blower pulley that gives it 2lbs less boost. Most HD owners replace the pulley to give it the lightning level of boost or higher. With bolt on mods, like a chip and pulley and exhaust upgrade, an HD can really move.. Here is an example.
HD 1/4 mile vid Dynoed at 442rwhp/618rwtq best of 12.73 @ 105.39 in the 1/4

More HD times and power levels

That's not to say that the 300C is slow, not at all. It's great to own 2 vehicles that haul ass! Also no matter how many HD badges and leather and power the truck has it's still a TRUCK.

I am a member of that forum, and alot of those trucks have mods. However, I do agree that the 300c would not "blow away" the HD. But also, there are alot of other things to factor in like driver, mods and such.

1. What you guys lawyers? I never said I "blew away" anything. I said I "smoked" the truck. Okay, no actual smoke was involved. I simply beat him, not by an overwhelming amount but confidently so.

2. My definition of smoked: Truck took off first. I jumped on it immediately after I realized the F150 wanted to race, I caught up and easily kept pulling away until I hit about 70 - 80mph. I was about 1/2 to 3/4 car length ahead of him. I could hear the whine of the F150's supercharger screaming as I chuckled to myself. At no time did I feel the F150 was gaining on me. This was a simple drag race with both simply "stood on it"

3. Spec's for 2003 HD F150, 0 - 60 is 6.5 (in Motor Trend or Road&Track), the 300c has been tested in 0 - 60 as fast as 5.3 sec in Motor Trend. The math supports my point, check for yourselves. Even if my car (as a "producton version") is in the 6 second 0 - 60 range, that's still 1/2 second faster than the F150 to 60mph and I can attest that above that speed I was still moving out.

4. I was there and I ain't jiving. I checked out that F150 forum... the stock numbers ain't all that on the F150. 14.85s in the 1/4mile for a stock 2003 (which is what I ran against), I've seen reviews with the 300c in the low 14's maybe even high 13's.

5. I'm not as smart as everyone else, will someone please explain the definition of "blown away."

BMWhat? good kill. People always try and test the new cars out of the production line especially when it says hemi on the door. I passed 500 miles yesterday and then I strapped on the Gtech pro and let it rip on an undisclosed patch of land to test 0-60 and 1/4. From my average times I think that car and driver was right on with its 5.3 60 and 13.9 1/4. I got a 5.34 60 and 13.93 1/4. I expect that with more driving those numbers will come down a little bit.

And for those who care. As I was coming home on the highway I had a little run in with an smg bmw m3 and from a 60 mph go I got him by just a bit to over 100. This car is amazing from a dead stop but once it gets moving and you hit the throttle it takes off like a bat outta he$$

"Just smoke one of those supercharged Ford Pick-ups the other day. Not even close."
Is this not your definition of blown away?

100% stock v.s. stock would give the edge to the 300C.

My point was most HD's are not stock and they are very simple to modify.

I never said you were lying and I even said Congrats. I was simply stating that I just had one and I didnt "think" the 300c would blow away the HD f150, in response to you saying "it wasnt even close". I guess you should read your disclaimer too...

"Any interpretation is set hereforth as soley the responsibility of the 'reader' and shall have no binding juristiction imposed or implied against the 'postee'."

I apologize if I took "it wasnt even close" out of context. That was my fault for assuming that you meant what you typed.
