It sounds as if you're not extremely knowledgeable about build/motor specs. Re-read TI's last post- - that is a small cam (implying low RPM) 383 with mild compression that will be EXTREMELY streetable and will hall the mail in a 4500lb truck. Put it in your 2500 unit and it will make you feel as if you're delivering the mail via air...lol. I reiterate 'streetable'.

Being 'streetable' comes down to cam specs. So a mild cam will be more streetable. To overcome the 'streetable' you need some additional cubes, hence the 383.


FWIW - I LOVE to haul the mail and I'm sure you will as well.
