No matter how much you try now, you still can't prove anything. We have no way of knowing how many miles you have driven that set up. Your word has no value to me.

I still don't know for sure if you even have the box installed in the bus.

Did you install it, or pay someone to do the work for you?

So, how about some pics and video?

As we always say on this forum, pics or it didn't happen.

Even if you did get it to work, anyone with common sense would not go that route. Way more parts under there than necessary. More parts = more stuff to break.

How about some pics of the chipped gears inside gears inside that browny box from all the improper shifts.

Edit In Alberta, you would get a distracted driving ticket for operating that mess on a public roadway.

Relax Nat
How about some pics of your bus, in use.

"More parts= more parts to break"

But converting a bus is always going to add LOTS of parts. All those additional systems are additional parts and things that can break.

Long time no post

Hello fine people. All is well in the land of my bus. After I made it east for the holidays I haven't made any long journeys. I have driven the beast to a couple friends places to give them the tour and go for a ride, give the air horn a blast or two. For now it's nestled in its east coast home. I don't plan on any long distance trips for a while. I'm pretty busy putting a 2.2 liter Subaru engine and 5 speed in my 74 beetle, flat windshield, not a super beetle, with about 100 horse power and a five speed now I'll have two cars that go much faster than they were ever meant to. And I'll be able to drag the one behind the other!

Long time

I went and did it. Got a zf5 out of an 84 350 super duty (rated for 500 ft lbs torque, up to 20k towload. Swapping it in in a weekend or so, drive shaft shop, here I come! Did anybody say twin stick rig? Also being that there are no less than 3 reputable manufacturers of complete turbo kits for the 6.9 na IDI, don't ever let anyone tell you you can't turbo it. Maybe get a high speed oil pump. Over and out. Let you know how I like 15 forward speeds and old school
Reliable IDI power
