Owner: Mustang Dave
Big Red (retired): 1989 Ford F-250 4wd Custom
Displacement: 7.3 L
Fuel type: diesel
Transmission: manual
Curb weight: 5800 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0
Frontal area: 60 sq.ft.
Description: EPA estimates are for the same truck with 4.9 L I-6 gasser, since EPA didn't provide estimates for >8500# F-250's that year. Let's set the MPG bar as high as possible. 4.10:1 final drive gears make fuel economy a bit more of a challenge.
Ats Turbo kit installed 1998-10-17 at 157980 miles. EGT and boost gauges installed 1999 June. Autometer oil pressure gauge, coolant temperature gauge, and voltmeter also installed at the same time.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: Driving the Mustang when there's no snow on the roads and when I don't need the truck - Mustang installed 2007-07-23.
Chevron DELO 400 LE synthetic 5W-40 engine oil vs. 15W-40 petroleum oil - installed 2014-10-25.

Planned Mods: None; I'm putting Big Red out to pasture
