Nice! Glad I am not the only one still working and trying to rehab a bus in my spare time. I have given us a 4 year time frame on our bus....that's when I will be retiring and we will be hitting the road full time.

The 8.3 Cummins can have as much as 330hp.
My engine has 250hp i think,but i have 3 more 8.3s now.
Once i get it on the road i may end up changing the engien to a low mileage one i have.
I think i will keep the HP low,to help with mileage and so as not to break the rearend,i have no idea just how much it will take.

Hmmm, IC, I was thinking of retuning up to 400hp.
I will have to check the rear end and see how much it will take.
Just doing a bunch of research, I know the coach is a lot lighter maybe the 250 hp is good enough.

400hp out of a 5.9 cummins is pushing the limit in my mind,keeping the engine cool is another thing..
The 70sp is light,at 22,000lbs..

Today we will work under the bus,trying to get the driveshaft built and i need to install the exhaust brake and support the exhaust.
Most of the wiring and plumbing is run front to back,all we need to do is hook it all up.
I have the battery chargers on right now,so we can power everything up.
