Thanks for the info, I was also wondering what all would be involved in by passing all the smog pump and everything and what kind of a mpg gain I might see there or any other tips to gain mpg for the 460 you all might have. thanks!
Sorry, seen it was a 5 speed. What gears are in it? Check all your brakes to make sure they are not dragging. Change all fluids with a good tune up and k&n drop in air filter, not an aftermarket FIPK kit they sell. From what all I know, that's the best you'll be able to do. What are you getting for mileage now?
Holy crap! There's something seriously wrong with your truck if you're getting 3 MPG, even towing a huge trailer. Sounds like you have a massive fuel leak or other problems.
he's not running a pickup and when he says towing a trailer,his combined gross would probably scare you and i.
5.13 gearing.if he's lucky,4.88's......but he doesn't sound lucky lol.surprising really that all the f-super duty (f450's) didn't all just get the diesel engine.
when it comes to pickups,your largest economy gains will be working on aerodynamics.not focusing on the engine.especially with the 460,where there isn't much to be gained anyway.i still have much to do myself. http://ecomodder.com/
