Need some details on that Mustang....
Must be niceFirst time with the new Super Duty.
Trailer is about 6500#, plus food for 3 days, 2 big dogs and a bed full of firewood. Maybe 7500# total.
Towed like a champ. The 10 speed auto kept the RPMs right where it made good power.
Wifey said the Ram(s) towed where you couldn't tell the camper was behind. But felt the Ford pulled better all the way around.
I could care less. The Ford has cooling seats which is pretty great on a swamp ass day of hiking in Salem SC.

There's some (less than empirical) data that the 8.1L can see 10-25% MPG improvements, without touching the "traction control" (Allison killer) from a mail-order tune.Pulls all day at 75-80 mph on flat ground. 50-60 on the KY hills. 6 MPG too.
Not the first time I hear that.There's some (less than empirical) data that the 8.1L can see 10-25% MPG improvements, without touching the "traction control" (Allison killer) from a mail-order tune.
Seems like a decent "investment"/quick return for $400-$500, given the steady rise in fuel costs?
My brothers been waffling on a tune for years for his 8.1L . It'll pull anything loaded and pass everything on the road... but a gas station!
I pulled this past weekend with my 99 454 truck. I got close to the same mileage as I did with the 8.1, but didn't pull the same for sure. I miss that truck, but, I did need 4X4. Glad she's doing good fr you
