    Quite the warm welcome. Thanks.

    It has a slightly higher power to weight ratio.. 0.69 vs 0.66 The Tundra is ~5500lbs with 381hp vs 6200lbs and 411hp. Generally speaking it's about a half second faster 0-60 and about 4 tenths on a quarter mile. Coupled with the stiffer suspension and it has a slightly faster launch. You don't notice the difference anywhere except takeoff.

    Based on search results, this seems to be a hot topic, but can you remove digital governor on the Raptor? I couldn't find a definitive answer.

    You can but the only way I'm aware of is a tuner. SCT was my pick, works great and I like the way it made the truck feel

    Did you go for an SCT with their prebuilt configurations or did you go wiht a 5-star version of the SCT?

    My mechanic (who's a buddy of mine) and I have been debating the whole Tundra vs Raptor speed contest (towing/from a dig/roll, etc) and from what I've been researching I think I may be outta luck. My Supercab Raptor is on its way but I still think his CC Tundra will be faster. Those suckers get up and move.

    A 5 star tuner will eliminate the hesitation you feel. I have trouble not speeding in ours now the thing is so quick.

    here, on frf
    morning.........



    kinda hard to compare the two since you would destroy a stock tundra offroad where a stock raptor would ease through

    The tundra only has the advantage off the line and over 100mph (it's prefers 85 - 90 though). The raptor has a quieter cab, better seats, no bed bounce, yada yada..

    Correct. It is not an apples to apples comparison. The raptor is equipped to perform in a different environment.

    ~ 5 days in. It rocks.
