I supposed it will be best to wait until after I make a trip to Colorado.
We were RVing with a 2010 Dodge Cummins 2500 pulling a 32 foot fifth wheel and there were times in Colorado that I couldn't go over 40 mph with the pedal on the floor when climbing. I don't mind some slower but will hate it if I have to drop below 30 mph and run higher 4000 rpms. I simply don't like the noise the V10 makes when it goes any higher.
I have a 96 Ford 460 with Banks. I live in Co and it takes the Eisenhower tunnel @ 11,000 ft. @ 40 mph turning 4000 rpm. Yes its noisy and screaming for about 20 min. My coach (Damon) came with the banks so I dont know how it performed without it but the engine runs super and powerful but forget about mileage improvement. There is no improvement. I mean none.So dont buy if you got better mileage on your mind.
Just my 2 cents.
