Question is how does y’all trucks do running 18k up a hill. Going down a hill hitting 70 then going up the next one flooring it to go about 57mph..... needs something. I’ve got a turbo kit but maybe injectors to. Am I asking to much from this old truck?
Yea, 57mph pulling 18k up a steep hill is about all I can do. You're probably gonna need the injectors plus the turbo kit.
