Dude, I hear that! Decades ago, I worked on cars for a living, and that sure did take some of the fun out of tinkering with cars for sport.

I'll keep your expertise in mind.

Oh, maybe you can recommend a fuel plate for my use? The Dodge/Cummins information seems to be all about spinning the tires away from stoplights, and leaving a cloud of black smoke for people to gape at. (Not that there.... ) But I need to pull a heavy load over big mountains, while I'm perfectly happy to take my sweet time getting up to speed when the light turns green. And smoke is a no-no. And then there is the economy issue, still.
When I get around to it, I plan to just slide the existing plate forward and see what that does. This trick has been reported to be quite helpful -- right here on this forum. But maybe there is a "Heavy RV" plate out there?
