215hp/425 torq.

average mpg i think is around 16.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

just remember it's the average. there are things that affect it.

auto vs manual
gearing in rearend
mods
lead foot
how much weight you haul
4x4 vs 4x2

i have a 96er Ext cab, LB, 4x4, auto with 4.10 rears with no mods. i get an average of 16.

I don't have access to the door tag to find the rear end ratio. I guess i just trying to get a feel for the expected HP/TQ when looking a these older trucks. I have driven my brother's 2001 7.3 with, 4.11, chip and aftermarket turbo and an 2003 6.0 which both will throw you back in your seat. I realize its not gonna the same power, just looking at ballpark figures. I'll let ya know the rear gear this week, I'm not a speeder, its an auto, 4x4 and wont be hauling majority of the time, and not sure of mods, dealer is closed now....

rear end ratio is on a tag of the dif itself.

1997 F250 4x4 Crew Cab Short Bed 3.55s E4OD 265/75-16s with Superchips 1705. Last tank was 19.7 mpg mostly highway, some stop and go. Factory rated at 225/465 for the 97 model. This is typical for this time of year. During the winter I averaged about 18.
