I am thinking about another super duty. I have had an 2000 excursion v10, an05 with 6.0 and an 06 f250 with 6.0 and have gotten rid of them for various reasons. So I currently have an 11 suburban 1500 and it doesn't tow worth anything! So I am thinking either an 05 excursion or 08-11 f250 and don't want another diesel. So I would like to find another v10. What years did they ineterduce the 3 valve motor? How do you tell one by looking at it? What are the difference? I know it has one more valve! I am asking performance wise. Is there a big difference and if so please explain! I know they are very popular in the rv's so that most mean something?
I am not very concerned about the sound. All though I was amazed at how quiet the 2 valve was I had but it didn't sound like any v8 that is for sure! I am just really not looking for another diesel. They are just to loud for me. I guess that is just my preference.
So the 3 valve was never put in the excursions? But has more power. Would it be just a matter of changing the heads?
If I find an nice excursion with high mileage is it something not to difficult down the road to replace the engine with a 3 valve? I assume it would be more then just the heads. Computers etc.... My thinking is I really like the excursions and would kind of like to make the ultimate excursion without a diesel.
