Well depending on your tire size gear ratio. You can defiantly get better mileage, my truck is way over geared. I tow my buggy with it, buggy weighs around 5k all loaded up, and not sure how much trailer weighs. The rotary pump first gen is no power house by any means but does okay with some mods.

4.10's and 235/85/16. Even if all I get is 13 it's still better then 8. I also have a 1st gen motor. There seems to be lots of pump mods to do with little to no cost really. Gov spring and fuel pin are the first one's I want to try.

get a pyro in that thing! especially for towing. my truck is all stock and i like the gauges to make sure im not pushing it too hard towing. it only takes one big spike in your egts to melt something.

well got it back together last night and had some time to wash it today. couple more little things i want to do to finish up the appearance, wanna do something with the taillights, front running lights, head lights and possibly some sort of front hub cover on the wheels. hauling my blazer to the dunes with it thursday so i might take it out on the dunes and get some pics there too.

What turbo are you running on your truck? How do you like it? Is it laggy at all?

its a custom turbo built out of hx 30 and hx40 parts with a spring gate. i cant remember what compressor wheel and turbine wheel is on it but if i remember right the exhaust housing is a 12cm. legendary diesel in kzoo built the turbo for me in trade for a tranny i had. it is not laggy with 12cm housing but i dont really think it has much topend power, by topend power i mean 2500-3200 but not sure that is from turbo or not enough fuel or what.
