You can find some mechanical injection up to 1997. They overlap with the electronic injection. I have a 1997 with a mechanical DT466.

Awesome, thanks for that tidbit crazycal! In terms of 97 parts and hp variants, what did they offer, and what do you have? I have seen different intercooler and injection pump setups throughout the 92-97 range, for example here is my buddies nearly identical but shorter 24.5" box truck, it has a different angle attachment between the injection pump and the engine block as well as the pipe configuration between the turbo and intercooler (1st pic).

2nd pic is my engine injection pump setup

It's interesting that my buddies truck intercooler pipes have less 90 degree bends, if not 45 degree bends. Clearly this does not have much difference in terms of performance difference at this airflow rate.

Second pump looks like mine, Bosch P-pump. That's what you want. I think mine is only 190hp because I have an AT545. YUK!!!

Other than the fact that I have direct access from the driver's area, this is a lot like my bookmobile (on an International 3800 chassis). The square ceiling is a HUGE bonus when it comes to building out the interior walls and cabinetry.

That DT466 will clean up nice and bright. Here's mine after some Simple Green and a pressure washer:

I did not see in your plans any insulation to be installed on the walls, do you plan on putting any there?

Crazycal, does your engine have a sticker on top of the block that says the horsepower specs at 190? I have 4 stickers on the top of my block that says 250hp, will try and get some pics when I get back from vacation. What is the mechanical difference between these two engines, or is it all the turbo and fueling adjustment?
