  8. Vortec 8.1: Engine Basics The Vortec 8100 is rather obviously an 8.1L V8. It was designed as a diesel alternative in the GM pickup truck line-up. The Vortec 8100 borrowed much of its design from the 454ci big block we all know and love. The main difference between the 8100 and big blocks of old is the increased stroke. This is what increased the displacement to an impressive 8.1 liters. You might be wondering, why isn’t this massive engine used in a performance application? The Chevy LS is super popular so why isn’t this engine? Well, there are quite a few things holding the Vortec 8100 back from ever becoming popular: Iron block and heads, total engine weight is over 750 lbs. Older big block parts don’t fit on the Vortec 8100. Chevy LS parts don’t fit on the Vortec 8100. Limited production makes them harder to find than an LS. Vortec 8.1: Performance Data This part gets a little interesting. If the Vortec 8100 is supposed to be an alternative to the Duramax engine, then it must create lots of torque. Torque at low RPM is one of the single most important factors of a heavy-duty engine. So, how does the Vortec 8100 do? For this, we’ll look at the performance data for the GM truck applications. Vortec 8.1: 330 horsepower @ 4,200 RPM 450 lb-ft @ 3,200 RPM LB7 Duramax: 300 horsepower @ 3,100 RPM 520 lb-ft @ 1,800 RPM Raylar Engineering makes a bunch of really cool parts to wake your Vortec 8100 up, but is it worth it? If you’re just towing their towing camshaft ($987) and the 511 stroker kit stage 1 ($8350) will be a killer combo for you
