Yeah, that's where it came from. I don't think anyone else has ever called the reference.
I've just been skeptical about the 6.2 from the beginning (mind you this is from someone that knows -> || <- that much about any
kind of mechanics) because it never seemed to want to preform. Like i said i know nothing of mechanics and when it seemed to never want to go above 60 mph i was a little confused. I understand that any diesel isn't going to typically want to go from 0-60 in 5 seconds or anything, but to have the pedal to the floor and only be going 60 at tops seems a little extreme. We did have some trouble with monitoring the oil and there was 1 case in particular in which i'm pretty positive it was overfilled. Basically i guess now that i think about it as far as being mechanically inclined, we are all numskulls.
I got the bus from someone that bought 2 identical buses from his local district. Their maintenance program was weekly (he knew the main mechanic). So when i got it everything looked pretty great and reasonably taken care of. But as i mentioned before, from day one it seemed to struggle at highway speeds. Maybe my ignorance is that to not know that such a thing is commonplace. I don't know.
My main interest in getting an "upgraded engine" was to make sure that i had the right tool for the right job. If the general consensus would be to try again, than maybe i should reevaluate my logic as well as expand my knowledge of the 6.2 and the 6.5.
Thanks Cheese_Wagon for the data and M1031 for the comments. It's widening my perspective already.
