Why not a diesel? The V10 will suck down gas like no tomorrow.

If you take off the 37's, you'll get much better mpg. And btw, the V10 will tow about the same and get around the same mileage or worse.

Oh the V10 is a great motor, it just won't give you the mileage or power gains you're expecting. It will still pull that camper well though

Here's the specs:

1994.5 7.3 Powerstroke= 215 horsepower and 450 ft/lbs torque

1999 6.8 V10= 265 horsepower and 405 ft/lbs torque

So the V10 has the horsepower advantage but the diesel has the torque advantage. My guess is they'd tow about the same.

So keep your truck and fix it instead of getting the v10. You'll be happy in the long run.
