So you are kinda disappointed with the power she makes then?
Not at all, compared to the last V8 I owned, or even some of the earlier diesel offerings; it towed exactly how I expected.
Don't get me wrong, its a compromise. Each has its pros/cons; but I don't regret the purchase of a gasser in today's market. Have I completely ditch owning a diesel? No, but they will need to become more realistic in reliability and economy, and cost of ownership.
I couldn't agree more.
Just curious.. We're working on developing some heads for the 4.065 bore motors right now specifically designed to increase mid-range torque, which would in turn actually kind of work to your advantage at being able to tow at a more comfortable RPM range. And although I agree whole-heartedly with everyone that the motor was designed to pull its hardest at higher RPM.. we can change that.
