Tom, I purchases a GMC RTS bus years ago to convert. It was an '82 with the DDEC II system. After I purchased it I found that I could have boosted my 6v92 from 180hp to 350hp IF it was pre-DDEC.

Apparently you can do a lot with the machanical engines but on the programmable ones you're pretty much stuck with what you get. Most shops won't reprogram for fear of Government regulations and fines concerning emission laws.

They even outlawed the 2-stoke diesels here in Maricopy county (Arizona) for commercial vehicles. So I could not register the bus until it was converted then as a Motor Home it was exempt. Needless to say I've sold my bus earlier this year to concentrate on other projects, Like my 63 Bluebird conversion.
