From what I've gathered, T19s were put only in the F250/350 lineups.T18 or T19
i really hate you, bastard :goodfinge50Gunner said:My 300 and 5 speed has gotten as high as 16.xx mpg, and I feel this tank is close to 17. Bone stock though.

Same milage. The 300 torques through the bottom end, and the 302 powers through the top end. Also the 300 will get you home every time.
Try down shifting into 3rd (1:1) or else something just doesnt sound right with your truck.AbandonedBronco said:I However, if you're looking for top speed, you won't find it here. My top speed on the flats was 70mph and that was with a tail wind, back seat removed, and the top off.
Steve83 said:Is 115 mph not fast enough for you? I've set my cruise over 100mph for more than an hour, and it wasn't topped out.
Yeah, 320 HP is a lot different than my 120.81Bronk36 said:Try down shifting into 3rd (1:1) or else something just doesnt sound right with your truck.
My old 302 could pull about 85 at 3/4 pedal and that thing had a timing chain so loose I pulled it off without removing any bolts. Now I can do at least 120 with my new engine and still have another 1000 RPMs But we are now comparing apples to oranges, as HP is the only thing my new 302 has (320HP, about 32 ft/lbs of torque)

It's lack of horsepower just doesn't get the big Broncos moving very fast. My top speed on the flats was 70mph and that was with a tail wind, back seat removed, and the top off.
With mine, I get around 18 - 22 mpg on the highway, depending on how I feel like driving that day. My lowest mpg was 17, and that's with a completely full load of luggage, belongings, and people over a distance of 450 miles in 10 degree weather. You can't argue with that. And this is on a 25 year old motor that's never had an overhaul or rebuild.
Off road, they are as most say, unstoppable. You won't go blasting through things like the big V8s, but you'll always make it. They have a great amount of torque at very low RPMs (specs say 255 @ 1400 RPMs) and never bat an eye at heavy work.
It all depends on what you're looking for. If you want a powerful trailblaster, get a V8, but if you want an unstoppable trailcrawler, get the I6.
All in all, V8s are cool, I wouldn't mind have another Bronco with one, but I won't trade my I6 for it.
