most of them are just too heavy for a 715. If I sell the truck and pick up a 2.5 or 5 ton....that is a different story. I might really start looking for a Detroit at that time.

The 6v92t doesn't weigh much more than a 12 valve. I think it's pretty close to 2k

I have a fully dressed 12 valve, with turbo, trans adapter, complete engine. Under 1000lbs. Most people estimate the 12 valves way to high.

The 12 valve swap is just about wrapped up. I drove it daily for 2 weeks without problems, then pulled it back into the garage for some steering maintenance. Should have it roadworthy again by the weekend. What a difference in power!


Here is a video I took a few weeks back when I first got it running.

Here is a highway video that I took yesterday on I95 in Bucks County PA. Boring and uneventful, but it gives you an idea of how roadworthy the truck is. A bit noisy for most people, but I love it.

I average 20mpg. I have squeezed 27 mpg around town...driving like a little old lady and going nowhere in a hurry.
