This air foil will add 15 mph to your top end. You can probably hit 130 now.

Nice bus. Congrats.

I foresee lots of busted knuckles, foul language, and airborne rust. Congrats on the bus

Super sweet combo! Should make an excellent platform.

And just for the record...in 3 digit Allison designations, the middle number is always the number of gears. 545 (four gears)...643 (still 4 gears).

Also...you can look up your tranny online at the Allison site...

Yes and a mt653 is a 5 speed but first gear does not go into second. You must top to go into and out of second.

It would appear as if you have gotten a really nice bus that still has a lot of life left in it.

You have a really nice bus with some cool extras, i.e. air foil. My first bus was a 40 foot Bluebird with an 8.3 Cummins. This is what I am picking up next week. It seems like I keep getting smaller and smaller. You will have fun with your bus and won't need much. You got engine, transmission, length, Webasto, luggage compartments. You got it all baby! Now just finish the outside.
