I think it would get better gas mileage at 4300 rpm at 75-80 mph going down the expressway on flat land than a a 383 or 400 or 454, and would hold up better at that sustained rpm. I travel alot, I drive to Florida, North Carolina, Tennesee, New Mexico, Montana. I need a motor built for 4000+ rpm all day long in this current truck anyway.
