yep, the newer EFI ones have always seemed to have better power than the early carb ones. I've pulled a car trailer with average weight cars down the interstate with my '92 F150 with 300 six. It doesn't have power to spare, but it'll pull it. If you're in the mountains... probably not.
I haven't been coming on here much anymore as my BBF projects are all "done", but holy cow, is there any moderators left? I'm trying to help out by reporting spammers as I come back, but wow, there's a TON of them, and it seems like some that I report go unnoticed for days or weeks.
