It looks like Rob sold his bus in 2013.
But,i will comment on the screaming engine,thats one way to go faster,you scream a 40yo engine long and you will get a new engine!
Slow and steady with that old gasser.

How difficult is it to out an 8.3 Cumming in this beast I'm guessing the MT40 won't adapt easy and need to get everything new for it. Like 100 hour labor or so?

Thanks Curt!

You need to look for a 95-96-97 something or other with a spartan chassis,beaver or whatever.
You just have to look and keep looking.
