    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.
