Re: 8.2 Detroit Diesel
run her till she pukes,then stick a 3208 in it.most likely your trucks got lower gears in the rear,most 8.2 trucks i have owned or came across were this way.the 466 is the best of the lot,but will likely be a harder swap,and run a lower governed speed[around 2700 rpms]the cats were good for 3000,memory servers me the 8.2 went to 3200.the cats a good engine and has gobs of low end trq..
the fleet; ferds ,02'f350,01'f450, 11' f350 the generals ,82'2500, 82'2500 4x4, 82' blazer, 86' blazer ,93'3500, 96'3500, and a 99' 3500hd with 12 valve cummins power. the goats, 90'd250, 91'd350 4x4, all are diesel powered. a list of bigger stuff, as well as gasser's, got lucky, wife comes from a family that collects junk iron too!
