Re: 8.3 md 3060 mpgquestion

Thank for the response. I was struggling between the 5.9 with 643 and 8.3 with 3060. We ended up getting the 8.3 with 3060. IN the mountains coming from Oregon and Idaho we avg 10 going 60. when we went up to 70 it went down to 8.8. But when I went 55-57 we got 12.45 ( Nebraska). Thanks for all of your responses. Just out of curiosity does anyone know how the 5.9 did with the pushers with the world tranny.

anyway thanks again

Re: 8.3 md 3060 mpgquestion

I find it sad that a mechanics shop would not re program the trans for you. It's a private vehicle at this point so no chance of a school district coming down on them. I'd ask to sign whatever "release of liability" paperwork the mechanic could come up with and unleash that bad boy! Wishful thinking... i know.
My poor 643 just can't muster a 5th or 6th gear no matter how hard I try. I'm jealous
