    Default 393 Gas Milage?

    Thinking about buying a 93 Ford Lightening and wondering about the gas mileage. The motor is a 393( stroked 351) short block with the stock heads. Would this motor get 10 miles to the gallon if driven carefully? I have a TVS 2011 5.0, and I'm not sure if I even want something that doesn't get more than 10 miles per gallon in the city.

    I think it should. The cam has a lot to do with the fuel economy. What else is done to the motor? I alway liked those trucks!
