The 8.1 can gain almost 100 horsepower with tuning? That's interesting........I gotta see some info on that.

Interesting, I was curios about the 8.1. I'm stock and a friend of mine with one is scared to hook bumpers.

Well, you never know I guess. I just think it's odd that you could get 100 extra horse out of a gasser like that. I'm so used to seeing gains of 20-30 horse at best. If you find some hard evidence let me know.
