Cummins vs. Powerstroke in a straight up showdown. Place your bets!

2006 Cummins 5.9 L vs.  2007 Ford 6.0L… If all things are equal other then that who is going to win?   Both trucks launch in Four Wheel drive in this drag race which keeps the competition even.  Between these two trucks one major difference is the Cummins has a 6 speed Manual while the Powerstroke is an Automatic.   Hypothetically the manual could offer better performance while drag racing but that depends on driver skill!   Automatics can be very quick and smooth shifting these days.

While the races are pretty close between these two drivers it is pretty clear that the Cummins has more top end speed then the Powerstroke. He is easily able to pull past the Powerstroke at the speed.  Off the line the Powerstroke is often quicker but once they are speeding down the road he struggles to compete with the top end of the Cummins.

What do you guys think?  Is this a fair race?  Let us know in the comments!
