F150 vs 2x F60?

Does this make much sense? Apart from the added 'safety' of using 2 engines (which surely isn't a major issue as whatever would be brand spanking new) the only benefits i can see are for the dealer, i.e servicing costs, original package price etc etc.

Does anyone have the twin 60 setup who could comment on 60's vs 150 for fuel efficiency?

Personally i would go 150 all the way. Opinions?

There will be a massive speed difference - 2x 60hp will give you about 95hp.
