I Rather Be Wheelin'
60MPH? I don't think my truck has ever gone that fast. Not even downhill with a 90MPH tailwind.
oops! i went to daleville high school,spelling wasnt required!:dunce:i have had the v-8 in my daily truck..406 sbc,and shot of gas. WITHOUT the gas the truck ran [email protected] mph in the 1/8, and got about 8mpg;10 if i really,really tried. i now have a truck that gets great mpg. you may have to clock it with a calender but, i aint in no big hurry anymore!
My s10 has a 2.8l v6 and runs amazing its not to big of deal but it gets 0-60 in about 18seconds not really trying its fuel injected thoughUmmm, you guys have obviously never ridden in a 82-85 S-10 with a carbureted 2.8. About 110hp at best with the factory carburetor and mine was SHOT. All this with a truck that probably weighs closer to 4000lbs with my toolbox. Considering truck gearing...it ain't gonna be fast! I swear by all that is holy it was every bit that slow.
In a top condition truck? Regular cab, unloaded, one gallon of gasoline in the tank with an 88 lb Prince driving it......16-18 seconds might be possible, but highly, highly unlikely.
Now, if you are talking EFI trucks? That's a different story. They are much more capable and run far far stronger.
