power difference...what do u think?
I sold my 97 F250 pstroke 5spd six months ago, and missed it...except for the five speed.
So I just bought a 1996 F250 4x4 supercab longbed auto 200k miles 4.10 gears, apparently all stock. It starts and runs good with very little blowby, it's only fault is a small (yet annoying) exhaust leak.
A couple of days later I got so excited that I bought a 1995 F250 4x4 supercab longbed auto 225k miles 3.55 gears, apparently all stock. It starts and runs good with very little blowby, it's only fault is a bit of rust (this too is annoying)
The '96 feels a little sluggish in regular driving.
The '95 on the other hand feels like a powerhouse at all times!
So my wife and I drove to an abandoned airstrip nearby, and drag raced each other...to my surprise we were neck and neck right up to 75 miles per hour.
I suspect the exhuast leak may be pre turbo and causing low boost in regular driving conditions (when the other truck feels so powerful)......
any thoughts would be appreciated!!
