I've talked smack about CAT engines but that's just cause mine was in terrible shape when I got it, and I'm bitter about how much I had to spend to make it be in good shape. In my opinion transmission is just as important as the engine, if not more so. Locking TC vs non locking makes a huge MPG and performance difference. More speeds the better IMO. Engine makes the power, but trans determines how effectively the power is used.

Honestly that is what I am worried about. I am completely clueless when it comes to diesel engines, let alone buses. I have enough money saved where I don't have to exactly worry about going the absolute cheapest route, but any money saved on my bus purchase can go to making the interior that much nicer. I am going to call the guy tomorrow and see if I can get some more detailed information on whats up with it. I'll relay the information accordingly. To who asked, i'm located in northeast Alabama...for now..
