GLH I am currently conducting an exhaustive study on that very subject. But so far the results have been conflicting

So far so good....5 mph is about right.... but we may yet surprise you....

The motors are decidedly stronger in mid range....and this makes the change worthwhile regardless of top speed increases.........

My remaining concern is getting them to idle properly...... but that too will come.

After the first chapter.....I give them an "A".

T2X what was the cost ? How much did you get for your 2.5's I'm sick of mixing oil. I made the biggest mess the other day at the gas station.

Used new style 2.5's are worth about $7-10M apiece depending on age and hours.

300x's list for slightly over $20m...and conversion needs are new steering plates.....extended steering rams.... on board oil tanks...... and that's about it. You can opt for smart craft gauges (and I suggest that).... but it is not essential.

How are they doing now ? I looked at the verado
but they dont offer the 20 inch in counter rotating.

Funny the verados are cheaper than the 300's
