Newb from utah

So lets start with the honest truth. Up to this point in my life I have NOT been a "Ford" person. I have always driven chevy/import cars and dodge trucks (Love that Cummins) I picked up a 1994 Crew cab long bed 4x4 f350 with the 460 and the E4OD trans (I believe) with 150k on the odo. The ONLY reason I picked it up was the price. I traded an 02 Saturn L300 that I was into a total of $250 for it. The truck was wrecked and the guy wanted out of it. So after about 2 weeks of tearing pulling cutting and swapping I have it back on the road (not painted but drivable.) During the weeks of work I heard how much I was going to LOVE the power of the 460. This was getting me excited. Well 3 days ago I drove it for the first time... What a let down. Now I don't know if it is the weight or what but my BONE STOCK suburban with over 300k on the odo stomps the snot out of this thing. the weight difference is only 800lbs so I don't really seeing that as an issue. The truck seems to run good but gutless as near as I can tell. If anyone has any ideas PLEASE help.

The reason I answered as I did is based on the axiom " Give a man a fish and he eats a meal, teach him to fish and he eats the rest of his life"

You can tell by many new member's posts that they do not read the stickys or use the search function. I was trying to promote the use of the search functon.

Best to all
