My wife bought me a 2000 Winnebago 35U adventurer. She doesn't know the horsepower rating of it. It is not turbo. I've heard that the oo models had more HP than the 99s, is that true?

Fred B.
p.s. I have been informed that she bought it but I have to pay for it.

The newer engines are 310 HP vs. 275 for the previous edition.

You have to watch out, the Fred's are taking over. Look at the VIN, if the 10th digit is "X" it's 275HP, if it's "Y" is 310HP. Here's hoping for YYYYY

Well, its a y but I didn't notice a turbo on it. I really haven't looked to close, cause it been too cold. Maybe tommorrow.

Thanks

The Ford V10 never came with turbo and there is not a mainstream aftermarket turbo for it.

Fred, Ford made several internal component changes to increase the HP. Enjoy the extra power.

a snack. Homer

If you want the V-10 to really haul the freight, consider adding the Banks performance kit. Whether the 275 or the 310, the additional ability to breathe makes an amazing difference. I spent about $2300 installed on my 275 and I now go up the passes with the diesel rigs. I leave the big trucks far behind.

Fred

The 10th digit indicates the model year. i.e. X = 1999, Y = 2000. The 8th digit indicates the engine installed. I assume that in model year 2000 Ford upgraded to the 305-310 HP engine. To find out more than you will ever want to know about your VIN go to:
www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/VIN_tools/default.asp and enter you VIN#.

I have the V-10 and it's a 2004, so I assume it's 310HP. Haven't checked the vin# yet to confirm, but it has a lot of power and so far I really like it. Pulls the toad up hills without extra effort.

My 2002 Ford v-10 Motorhome doesn't have a letter in the 10th digit. I have a 2? What gives?
