So it turns out that International offered the 3406 in their s-series chassis. And when I was looking at parts online yesterday I noticed something odd- They list the Cat 3406 as an engine option for my 1998 3800.
Maybe its not as crazy as I thought!?

I think the 3800 is just a renamed S-1800 when they changed the nose.

That 3406 shorty isn't such a wild idea after all!
If 3208's were put into so many FE school buses a 3406 shouldn't be too bad, weight-wise. the six is gonna be longer, of course. But I'm thinking CE with a cutout and custom doghouse like FE buses or Thomas Vistas would take care of that.

Chris, John- the wipers worked amazingly tonight. we put new blades on it after Chris came over and fixed it. We also went crazy with Rain-x on the windshield and driver window. Sure worked GREAT!
Temp gauge stayed at 180-210 on the way there. Slightly under 180 the entire ride back except one radical hill we pulled up doing 60.
I love driving it!
