The V-10 is maybe 5-10 lb/ft off from the diesel....they're very comparable motors, to the point that fuel mileage is almost the same if driven right.

Either way though, if that had a diesel, I would have made a mess in my pants.....but it made my pants tight though lol.

I love my V10 Super Duty, 2 years and the only thing I had to fix was a stuck door switch.
Lots of bottom end torque but needs a chip to open up the limiters.

Love the lift, what make is it? Looks like Fabtech? Looks like a cowl hood too
