Cant wait to hear what your fuel milage is.
Nahh, the Series 60 wasn't an option for me......found all kinds of them for pennies too, and a fraction of what the Cummins cost me.
The Cummins is THE
engine to have. I did A LOT of research, even went for some drives in some Big Rig's (tractor trailers) with a friend of mine who owns a trucking company, and we compared all the engines. (ISX, S60, C15). The C15 would have been my second choice.
I found that there is a reason they put this exact Cummins engine in all the high end trucks, and the most expensive coachs in the world, such as the 1.5 Mil$$ Newells.
