lost to a chevy

What kinda power do they make with efi live? My supervisor has an 8.1 yukon and wants to do some minor mods to it.

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.
