I've heard different things about who is better, faster, stronger, etc. But i really want to know from some experience which is FASTER stock. The 350 vortec z71, and the piece of scrap ford hammered on and painted. Comparable figures, ya know, ford 4x4 and 5.4 against above stated. 0-60, off the line, top end, just some stats. we can have fun with this...
JPC GMC Z71
I'd say the Chevy is faster, unless you cut off the tailpipe. In that case the Ford would be faster due to the decreased torque in the Chevy.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Looks OK to me Scoob, what are you seeing? Also, I was curious to see if the biohazard logo in my sig is annoying to have there. The Dodge guys all have these humongous pics of their trucks in their posts, and I find that a little distracting. If my sig is annoying then I'll change it.
none taken shagster...but seriously, do you know any ups or downs? the stock 5.7 vortec is 260 hp and i was told the ford 5.4 have somewhere around 230-250, something like that. but there are other things that come into play, wieght of the truck, stuff like that...
red Z, Chevy's have ALWAYS been faster! it's got something to do with the placement of the disributor! Shaggy, your biohazard symbol is not showing up at all to me, just the box around it! I know what you mean when people use a 4" X 5" pic of there truck it gets very annoying, but then again most of those dogde boys are pretty annoying anyway!
Yours is fine, (when i see it![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img])
I would assume that the Chevy is faster, due to the higher horsepower and the fact that Chevys generally make more torque through a broader RPM range. I know that the new Silverados, even with the 5.3, are considerably faster than a comperable Ford with the 5.4.
Stock Vortec 5.7L is 255HP, 330 lbft of torque. I don't know about the F##d 5.4. One thing to remember is I think most F##d's came with 3.55 gears while most Chevy's have 3.73's (except my 3.42's...damn high gears). So, you'd probably take a F**d off the line, but for all out max speed, the F**d might take you. Wouldn't matter anyway since the speed-limiter kicks in at 95 or so! Anyone else know about weights?
