    Thought about that. Guess I'm going to have to look into that. Don't like crawling up the hills

    Those are good gears. It should pull decent in stock form.

    I thought so but its not. It ran most of its life up and down the east cost so you would think it would cruse.

    So with 3.55’s what size tire are you running and what is your definition of it “falling on its face”??

    Tires are 22.5 tall. My definition of falling on face is hitting a hill at 70 and ending up at 30 before I get to the top.

    Maybe pressure check the charge air cooler and piping.

    Guessing you’re only 80,000 gross and not very steep hills?? But that sounds normal for a 10 speed with the big gear splits. You should look at adding a boost and pyro gauge so you know how the engine is performing along with checking for boost leaks and dirty air and fuel filters.
     
    Vampire, tommymonza and lester Thank this.
