Re: New truck and engine idea\'s
Well, the 5speed sounds like a good idea for a tow rig, might save you from burning trannies up when hauling your comp. rig.
Turbo's and carbuerators don't mix very well. If you're set on a turbo, go EFI.
Or go diesel. With all the work and research it would take to get a turbo to work efficiently with a big block, you could probably find a smashed old model dodge with a cummins and a NV4500.
Just tossing some ideas out, and you should call your insurance agent and see if there is a cut of on GVW where you don't need emissions. In vancouver, if your over 5000Kg and under 5500kg you don't need to pass emissions and aren't classed commercial unless you exceed the 5500kg limit. Never heard about the hot-rod thing before, maybe its an eastern thing [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
