While I know intercooler, plumbing, turbos, etc add a fair bit if weight, this seems to confirm just how much more iron the "little" 2.7 has to be built to handle the power levels. It's a good thing; just interesting to see an engine with nearly half the displacement come out to near equal weight. » 7/24/14 12:46pm 7/24/14 12:46pm

Another thing to raise is that this appears to be a pure drag race up the road which isn't really relevant to how these trucks will be used for towing.

Kinda piggish in stock form, but easily made quick and enjoyable with simple bolt-ons. I've had mine for about 10 years now and the only problem is that there is very little aftermarket for these cars. Most optional parts available now have been through the efforts of other owners and group buys. » 7/11/14 12:20pm 7/11/14 12:20pm
