I'm new to the forum, and am looking to do a few mods to my truck in an effort to help it tow my 9,200 lbs. trailer.
Any recommendations of a reliable service shop would be appreciated.
1999 Ford F250 SuperDuty SuperCab 2WD V10
Transmission: 5-SPD Manual
Engine: 6.8 EFI-SOHC (W)
Horse Power: 265-275 (120th off of the line in Kentucky)
Rear Gear Ratio: 3.73 (stock)
Miles on Engine: 66,000 (not my daily driver)
Suspension Lift: 4"
Tires: 35" x 12.50 x 17"
Cat-Back: Borla - Split Dual Exhaust
Possible Performance Enhancements:
01. Swap rear-end gears
a. should I go with 4.56's or 4.88's?
b. mpg vs. power?
c. after I re-gear, do I need to do anything to the truck (electronically), so that it knows the ratio is different?
02. Power Module / Tuner ()
a. is the X3 by 5 Star Tuning the only choice, or is there a better option?
