Default I foung a great engine swap canadate!


Powertrain - Truck & Bus Engineering Online

it makes about 700 hp out of its 2000 rpm revving, 16.1L inline 6. Oh and did I mention it makes 2323 lb ft of touque . Its exhaust brake sucks up more horsepower than my current engine can even make lol. Oh and it weighs 3000 lbs so it may alter the weight distribution.

Sounds like a good deal. Now use a 20+ speed mountain bike gear setup, and a magic lamp and you have yourself a great ride! Id like to see what that engine feels like in a new bus. I bet it beats the old school bus in a race. Diesel engines never fail to amaze me in their power. I got a new Kubota tractor last weekend, and even with 44HP (not sure of the torque) that little 4 cylinder diesel can put down the power, with the help of 4WD anyway. Makes my old gas powered tractor seem like a toy.

Put that sucker in a limo! Plenty of room for it in there.
