LOL^^^^^

To the OP, check out the engine builders thread. L swap would be your best bet.

More power and more MPG are opposites with these trucks for the most part. To get more power on these you need to use more fuel.

Money spent on upgrading to a newer/better motor that does have more power and "better" MPG costs so much that getting better mpg is not enough to make up for the cost.

You can always pull a couple Clydesdales in a trailer behind ya. I'm pretty sure they count for two hp each.
