    Those two words don't go in the same sentence (max power and fuel economy).

    Not much a chip can do with a gas engine.

    Now a Diesel is a WHOLE NUTHER STORY.

    You can get just about as much power you want out of a chip, bigger exhaust and intake.

    BUT we are mear subjects and not allowed to have small diesel trucks.

    If enough of you would raise enough stink with your dealers, congressmen, senators whoever will listen maybe that would change.

    Every car and truck you see on the road today has a twin in europe and south america with a diesel engine in it.

    It's not like Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Toyota and Nissan don't make them, They do. Our Government will not let them be imported. And the diesels made today are as clean as gas engines.

    Diesel engines are more fuel efficient. That is a no-no in the USA. :D
