I am going to check out a 00 Ford F350 w/ V10 4x4 tonight. Is there anything I should look for?
did they fix it that day or will you have to do it yourself?
Yeah I have heard a few things abotu them. I pretty much fell inlove with the powerstroke I drove this weekend I am going to look at it again on sat.
psd > v10
yes, one thing you should know.. please be aware that the V10 is the worst engine design in the history of engines.
I know this but I just wanted to check one out. My friend has a 99 Dodge Ram V10 4x4 and that engine has nothing but the best no prolems at all.
Yep thats what I have always planned on getting the whole time.
The v10 isnt bad, but that's what you'll be averaging gas mileage wise. 10mpgs.
I drove one of the V10s and was completely unimpressed by it. I expected it to really throw down some power but all it did is consume fuel at an alarming rate. (8 mpg on a flat freeway drive is pretty sad in my book).
Not good screw it I am getting the diesel.
Diesel >>>> Gasoline for any heavy duty application.
Shit...even for light duty. I like getting 40 mpg in the city on a 11 year old car.
It did have a big (but empty) toolbox bed on it but still a V10 should move that with no trouble... and it wouldn't affect the freeway fuel consumption.
I wonder how well the v10 likes boost.
I have always been partial to Diesel trucks but I just wanted to check out a v10 and see how it is.
I know a few company make superchargers for them. I dont remember the numbers they put down though.
If I was in the market for a heavy duty hauler, it would be a diesel Ford. I don't know shit about the V10
V10, as stated by others, is a shitty design, the diesel has MUCH more potential
my buddy had a v10.. somehow the heads warped on it.. was only running on 7 cylinders..
he ended up trading that in on a PSD.. truck is >>>>>>>>>>>>> than a v10..
absolutely no comparison..
My dad is also family friends with Gale Banks My dad has a 01 F250 Powerstroke pushing around 400hp and 650+lbs of tq
then why are you even looking at a v10?
i'd LOVE to have an f350 PSD.. runnin about 450-500 hp.. and GOBS and GOBS of torque..
it'd getup and go, thats for sure.
Its close to my house and I know its not what I want I just wanted to check it out.
get a dodge w/ cummings diesel
I have driven them. I dont know they didnt catch my eye as much as the powerstroke did.
Just to let everyone know V10 sucked ass. I went and checked it out anyways. I may have a PSD tomorrow
