Re: 350 vs. 6.2 diesel
Thats true wrath, but how often does that happen? I honestly couldnt tell you but in the long run Diesels last long do to lower operating RPMs.
Also the regard of mileage has to come to mind. I have a friend at college with the same model truck as mine, except he has a 350 and I have the 6.2 He gets in the area of 10-12 Miles per gallon. I can pull 19 miles per gallon with mine. We both have similar driving habits. I have a turbocharger on my truck which I think would lower mileage some, also 31/10.5 tires which would lower it some also. His motor is still stock in terms of performance mods. He runs 235/75R15s. So the money saved on gas could pay for that injector pump.
If your looking for something to get alot of performance and horsepower I would go for the 350 before the 6.2. If your looking for economy I would go for the 6.2
