Buzz, I would think there's no comparing fuel mileage between the Cummins and the V10. I get 21 MPG solo and 14 heavy towing at 65-70 with my Cummins/6 speed stick - which has not yet been chipped.

Or did I miss something, and you're taking the gearing out of a Cummins for this project?

Dick,
My Cummins truck has 3.55's in it, and my V10 has 4.10's. I'm going to 37" rubber on the Diesel, and the fuel economy sucks on the gas truck so it's a perfect swap.
The Diesel will need lower gearing to pull the tall tires and a transplanted 5 speed.
The gas truck has PLENTY of grunt down low to pull the 3.55's and just over stock 30" tires. This way when I sell the V10 I won't feel like I'm strapping someone with a truck that'll eat their lunch at the pump.

That, and I basically can't leave anything mechanical alone for long without playing with it.

I've heard Florida be called the Australia of the US and its partially true. Lots of schemers and dreamers but in the end its not such a bad place, just like the land down under I presume. This thread should give you a good cross-section of the people here--families, cosmopolitans, foreigners, rednecks, zombies, you name it. Hell, some of the 9/11 terrorists lived down the street from me. I was born and raised here and I'm thankful for that. I feel as though I can blend in anywhere in the US. However, it truly is a melting pot and if you are not ready for the flavors you could get violent diarrhea.
