    I ran a gear vendors in my 2001 7.3 350 dually with 4.10s and it worked great. empty or 1000 in the bed and I could still get near 20 MPG. Towing north of 12K and mileage went down closer to 11, but I have a heavy foot. With my 65 F100 with the pontiac, I used a 700R4 and that worked great, for low bucks as well. Problem you have is weight, and probably the 6.7 drivetrain is the way to go. I guess its how far you are going to go distance wise. DId you ever try a FAST or comparable system on the 482? Big oval shelby breather to cover it up and some pent roof valvecovers.

    never tried different brand EFi. I have a GV C-6 for clone along with GT390 carb, 406 shorties, Mercury script aluminum covers, dropped beams for clone. Dad’s was red red so mine will be twin.

    I had a GV in my 2001 F350 dually and it was fantastic. 7.3 of course. the new 6.7 makes 470/950 at tire bone stock. Hard to beat that with any gas.

    f350 lariat LE with GV. Fantastic with my 32’ gooseneck. 22-23 empty with tune and typical 14-15 towing if I drove it nice. Towing it did not like high elevations.

    Have agreement to buy one in Canada but border patrol says no to crossing border.

    these Mercury covers are for clone of my dad’s. Just a huge Mercury fan as have owned 3 different 1967 Cyclone, Caliente and Capri 427 “R” codes plus a ton of other comets and cyclones.

    Definitely the east side of the state.

    Good luck, I hope to see you driving it soon.

    Move on, nothing to see here.
