im going to just back up what everyone else said...the 3v came into the in 05... as far as MPG...my dad cant break 11 mpg in his v10 where as i just got 13.5 with mine and that wasnt ven babying it...we drive the same route all week....if you tow heavy loads...yes wait and get a v10, but the 5.4 is a solid motor even though pre-05 models were a little under powered...as a everyday driver and a once in a while tow-rig, the 5.4 is a great little motor...paired with 4.10 or 4.30 gears it would do just fine...keep us posted!!!

That looks like a good old wiki quote, the SD's never had the NPI 5.4L's so the '99 numbers are wrong. Not to mention I have never heard of NPI V10 heads which is what that 275hp number must be trying to say.
