SVT Lightning VS SVT Raptor

My buddies and I got drunk last night and with a conversation that started with them trying to say Camaro SS could walk a Mustang Super Snake (with enough money into it) diverted into the SVT Lightning VS. the SVT Raptor in a strait drag race. I'm arguing in favor of the Lightning due to the fact that no street built truck can touch it (off the show room floor) and that they've been reliable machines for years now.

The comparison


2004 SVT Lightning

5.4L Triton V8
380hp/450ft-lbs torque
Eaton Super Charger
3.73 9.5'' rear end
Modified 4R100 4-speed automatic transmission with OD lockout
0-60 5.2 seconds (car and driver)

2011 SVT Raptor

6.2L V8 N/A
411hp (took the lowest number I could find as a bhp reading)

Due to time constraints I could not be as thorough as I would have liked to be for the comparison. Yes, we did argue the "one is a street truck, the other is built for off road abuse" topic. Still, my buds want to say that the Raptor can spank a Lightning. What's you weigh in on thIS TW? Removing off road from the comparison which one would you like? Bonus question and argument. Given $10,000 bucks to mod each truck which do you think will still come out on top?

I'll give it to the Raptor in the respect of more power/modern technology. I could not find the power:weight ratio's for either truck and that's mostly what I wanted to base my argument on.

Already a proven fact that the SRT-10 is an over priced, under powered, glorified Ram. It just can't hang.

On the real, it was an issue that got addressed and the 01/02 detonation issues were fixed and for the back half of 02 the engines were produced with the issue resolved. I just wish they would have gone through with circulating the original design for the super cooler.

Power to weight ratios is simply power divided by weight...

411/6200 = .066 hp per pound for the Raptor
380/4670 = .081 hp per pound for the Lightning

That being said, the Lightning is going to BURN the Raptor on the street.

factor in the aerodynamic advantage of the lightning and better traction from street tires to those ratios, and i think the winner is fairly predictable.

Well like everyone else, you have your own opinion but it is still the "world's fastest production truck."

Well, if you can show me some "unbiased" numbers other than something along the lines of "my buddy has a cousin" then I might listen to you, but considering I have actually driven both in stock form I will stick with my opinion.
