You will have to give more info than that. What vehicle is the 460 in? How much does you truck weigh compared to his, etc.

He could have 350HP to the flywheel as well.

My money is on the stroke, given the info you've provided. There's not enough mods on that 460 to overcome the torque that 7.3 has.

Lol. Id be selective on which duramax i lined up with. Those trucks are light and can be powerful with only few mods and can easily outrun a 7.3 with the same mods. Same thing with newer common rail cummins trucks

I've got a 7.3 in a superduty with a big pump, charger and injectors. I've built seveal 6.4s that will blow it away with stock fuel components. 7.3's are good ole engines but are no match for todays commonrails.

x2. i had a 97 f250 powerstroke that i used to sled pull with. i rebuilt the motor, installed 160cc injectors, H2E turbo, superduty intercooler, superduty HPOP, and custom tuning from elite diesel. while it was quick for what it was it was still only about as fast as a 6.0 with a tuner and exhaust.

BUT, hooked to the sled it was a different story. the horsepower of the smaller cubed newer diesels had a hell of a time pulling with the torque of the 7.3. and so i managed to win the points race for 2007 with my old stroker against some new (at the time) diesels. :D

Yeah I've got 300cc 100% nozzles with a ball bearing 66mm turbo all the supporting parts to make that stuff work as well. Running a ceramic dual disk and a manual. It hangs in there with the newer truck sled pulling. You just can't beat the newer engines they've just can along way from the ole 7.3. I'm working on a 6.4 single turbo sled puller for the 2.6 class now:D
