New LLY version of the Duramax has 605 foot-pounds of torque. Shouldn't need any more power. There is certainly plenty more available with a chip though.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: traded in the 8100 for the duramax

I'd be careful about mods.

The allison tranny is rated to like 10 more foot pounds than stock in the current D-max.

Mine is stock to the exhaust tip. I don't want to hurt anything and it has plenty of power.

In an ex-cab 4x4 2500 I (used) to get around 19MPG commuting. A little over 20 on the highway if I'm easy on it. bed.
