|G1355 said: (quoted from post at 22:38:21 12/12/13) 4:56 gears at 60mph is about 2000rpms and at 75 2500rpms, |
to run 4500rpms I'm doing about 105-110mph, and a gas will
out pull a diesel if geared lower, and I can chip my gas also or
supercharge it and get over 150 hp and more than that in
torque and it still won't cost more than a diesel. If you take the
extra 7500 your spending on a diesel and stick 7500 in a hemi
it will out pull a diesel anyday
In an unloaded truck, sure. Otherwise not. No gas engine will get the low rpm load moving torque that a diesel engine does.
Your arguement of gearing down a gasser to make it outpull a diesel is stupid.
Same truck, same GEARS you lose. Even remotely close gearing, you lose. This post was edited by PretendFarmer at 04:23:49 12/13/13.
