I have owned a v10 Ford and it is a stump puller great for towing. Great truck. I own a V10 Viper...wicked. I feel the Viper engine is a far better choice for boat applications. First of all the Viper V10 is a light alumunim block and head engine. The Viper is a 8.0 liter the Ford is a 6.8. Easy choice.
625 hp out of a light reliable engine.

Hey I'm getting 25 mpg highway on my 2002, 110k mile PSD in an F350.

Gotta link to a Mercury site showing that marine PSD?


25mpg in a F350....going down what hill with how big of a tailwind?
