    Hi all,

    I am getting a (used) Yukon 2005 SLE (4x4) next week. I am excited to have it. I live in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and gas is cheaper than water (premium gas '95' gallon is 60 cent and regular gas '91' gallon is 45 cent.

    I surely don't have a problem in having an extra power to the car and thinking about upgrading the 5.3L engine with supercharger and take the 295 hp to 385 hp and increase the torque from 335 lb./ft. to 415 lb./ft.

    I will be buying the kit from Vortech Engineerings http://www.vortechsuperchargers.com/product.php?p=112&cat_key=23 , Part # 4GL218-120SQ (2nd last).

    As I am just a handy on tools and have done a light maintenance on all my cars myself. I feel that I can add the kit myself.

    Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

    Welcome to the site!
    It sounds like you have a great vehicle to start with and will be twice as great with the mods you are planning. Keep us posted with pictures of your new (to you) Yukon when you get it, and when you do your mods.

    Welcome to the site. The Yukon should treat you right. I can remember when regular gas (leaded) was 13 to 15 cents/gal. when the "gas wars" were alive and well. Of course that was nearly 40 years ago!
