    Hey guys, had a question about getting more power for my engine. Alittle background is that I did an egr delete kit and replaced my cac which improved my fuel mileage but not power. I get between 6.5 and 8 mpg and I run local and usually heavy. No black smoke or anything, truck runs and sounds good but I just cant pull any #### hills. Is there anything i can do to increase power or is this just a slow truck? Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated

    You need more fuel to go faster up hill.
    Marine ved12 were 750hp.

    Did you ever end up finding a tuner? Is it still deleted?

    Yes it's still deleted, I got the otr preformance quick alittle bit before they pulled them bc of the trouble they had with the epa. I never tuned it to have more horsepower, alittle afraid it'll shorten the life of the motor, did you tune yours?

    No I cant find anyone that does tuning on these. Did you get the otr performance box or did you just plug them?
