dont know if that particular motor has it, but is is considered an acert engine
I just did a muffler for a m450 without the catalytic portion
Should require no reprogramming of the engine computer

Hi David,

No, it doesn't. Here's a pretty good article that talks about ACERT on a C15.

Rob,

Thanks for the photos. I'm not a carpenter, so the idea of recreating all of those cabinets from scratch boggles my mind. BB did a fine job on your '94.

I'd be looking to De-rate the Cat to one of the lower settings (do you really need all that HP/Torque) and try to get better reliability and better fuel mileage.

'

Yes it has the catalytic muffler on this coach You Can replace it with a non catalytic muffler
the stock muffler is a lot of coin Bluebird wants just shy of $7,000.00 for one
a Regular stainless Muffler is under $600.00

The motorhomes built with that engine had the 550HP rating,but this was a seated coach,tour type bus,I suspect it may only be 400-450HP in that application.
Only Cat can tell you the real ratings.

I'll show the wife these pic's tonight when she gets home, see what she thinks.
