    I have emailed them about their products and received a quick reply with all questions answered. I have not bought anything though.

    That TBI engine they sell sounds pretty nice.

    I bought some stuff from them and they do good business and have good products. TBICHIPS.com does a lot of business with them. No complaints here.

    I have tried calling them but no one ever answers the phone. Interested in the motor they sell. Would like to talk to somebody before I shell out $2000.

    GM does not sell anything remotly close to the modified GM products xtreme FI sells.

    I have bought a couple of 590 CFM TBs and some other stuff from xtremefi and have been very pleased with them. Good quality work and great price too. I have never bothered to call them but They always answered every email I sent them promptly.
    I really like the looks of their TBI engine. If i needed a TBI engine I would definatly concider ordering one

    Dana 44

    I plan on running 38-40in tires. I can get a good deal on a 44 and rear 60 w/ the same gearing at a junk yard for $900. I was wondering if i could build up the 44 strong enough to hold up. Using chromemoly axles etc. or am i just wasting my time.

    I dont have any idea.:dunno: beings the nearist dyno is 250 miles away. I think my butt dyno tells me my stock head/cam K5 Is running around 250-260 HP. But I think I am making some real good torque .
    Towing pretty much equal weight I can keep up with my buddy's 05 K2500 with a 6.0L.
