The 8.1 "only" makes 340HP which certainly beats the 350 four barrel of the 1980's with 145HP. How did anybody ever manage to pull a trailer then? However GM could not justify an extra 8.1 production line when the Mark IV LS engines are making 360HP 6.0L with 2500/3500 chassis and 403HP 6.2L in the HD tow package 1500. With fuel injection and unleaded fuel. Any old gasser that makes 300,000miles has not been a big deal for the past 25 years. Try 300,000 miles and the bills. To keep a diesel 30,000psi common rail injection, urea injection, particulate filterd, cat convertered, , turbo, variable waste gate, dual battery, and dual alternator rig. Too bad most diesel purchasers won't admit they choose the diesel so they can re-program in some smoke and another 100-150HP. Or run off road fuel.
