A while back we ran a feature on a really, really, big, really, really, long 6.0L Ford that ran some surprisingly quick times. Mid 12s on a budget were a reality for this daily driven Power Stroke.
Well, the owner got fussy, and decided to turn it up big time on the Ford, in the form of a drilled-out nitrous jet and .157 solenoid. The result? The big four door went 11.68 at 115mph, nearly fast enough (11.49) to require a rollcage, which we're not sure that will happen with back seats. Unfortunately, the motor said it had enough, and threw a rod after the pass.
We'll see what Johnny does, but we're looking for more Wheaties and a Diesel Power Challenge entry for the Ford camp! He says he'll be back with a new engine, and some 10 second slips for next year!
