Rob and Bev,
Without a way to PM you on here, i’m hamstrung with a way to send you the whole piece: GAS or Diesel; CONSIDERATIONS.
and there is a lot to consider.
I survey the big gasser V-8’s by Ford, GM, and Chrysler/Fiat.
In a nutshell the best version for what you need is the 7.3L Ford Gas/10 speed, but I need more information. Next down the line is the GM 6.6L gasser/10 speed. Next is the Ford 6.2L gasser/10 speed, for reasons I talk about in the piece. Bringing up the rear is the Chrysler/Fiat 6.4L Hemi V-8 with it’s miniscule 100 pound feet of torque @ 1600 rpm.
if you could send your email address to:
firstname.lastname@example.org (Put the two fours into just numbers like listed under my picture) I’m hoping this eliminates any nefarious contact. Your email will remain hidden.
I will forward you the 10 page article.
It has a lot of info, but you can digest it at your leisure.
regards, as always, jefe
