was it a 6spd or torqshift? The 6spd is known to be a slug behind the 6.0/6.4

go drive a new gm/lmm. I have been driving a really fast diesel and the lmm seems super powerful and extremely quiet. It's fast, go check it out.

for longevity, the F450/550 is made to be a work truck, not a drag racer :Thumbup:
