ford6.2

The 6.2 in the f350 [316hp and 397t] torque and power ratings are only 300 rpm difference from the 385 hp in the f250 one of our older 2 valve v 10 will leave it in the dust.Roush and other aftermarket have no upgrades for the 316 hp version

Well what do you expect in the power department when the V10 has a larger displacement of 6.8L? Lots of people on FTE wanted to have the V10 option on the current model f250 & f350, but it's not going to happen. I have not read one owner say they thought the 6.2L Boss lacked in the power department. I'd test drive one before you bash it. It has a few less HP than the V10, but it has a more advanced transmission to make its HP/TQ more efficient.

If you do a few searches on this (6.2) forum, you'll see this has been discussed numerous times here before. The 6.2 in the F-350 is only rated at those power levels due to the RPMs at which it's rated. It is the same 385 HP 6.2 as in the F-250 and develops the same power as that version. It is merely rated at a different RPM.

The 411 version in the F-150 is not flex-fuel capable as it is in the Super Duty either. If you look at the 6.7 Diesel in the pickups versus the chassis-cab trucks, you'll see that the pickup version is rated at 400 HP and 800 TQ. The chassis-cab version is rated at 300 HP and 660 TQ. The chassis-cab version is derated for longevity where the trucks are often idling for long periods of time and used to tow / haul heavy most of their lives, not to mention the fact that many are fleet trucks and not operated by the same driver all of the time.

The same reasoning and logic could easily be applied to the difference between the F-150 and Super Duty versions of the 6.2. The Super Duty trucks are basically designed as work trucks / tools whereas the F-150, while capable of plenty of work, is not designed to be used in the same manner as the Super Duty.

Hey you guys with the 6.2 v8 towing campers ... where do you fill up? With my 7.3 I stop at Flying Js if I can or pull into a truck stop - but haven't even considered pulling into a standard gas station with my 35 footer...

Stick with what you know...and like. Those stations you mention have gas too. Plus...just with the diesel...high volume stations usually offer better gas.

You can fill up at Flying J's as well with the gas 6.2L. The RV pumps have diesel and gas and its no problem when pulling a large rig. The normal vehicle pump lanes are usually ok but some are located too close to the store/restaurant which could make using those pumps a bit difficult to exit with a large rV, so I would recommend the RV pumps at the Flying J's.

Most times the "automotive" pumps are lined up facing the store entrance. With those, if you don't/can't get an outside pump you are screwed.

So I am looking at picking up a gooseneck and pulling it with my '11 250. I know the truck will pull it, but since I've never had a gooseneck, can anyone recommend a good hitch setup? I would like to keep everything under the bed, and hidden when I'm not pulling it. Thanks for the help.
