Check with your IC bus dealer, they might be willing to help. They'll have all the software for disabling the governor etc. Not sure about adding cruise though if the bus was never built with it.

PM cadillackid. He travels the country and has the software/laptop to accomplish some of what you want. Get a hold of him and see where he's currently at and if he could swing through Nashville in his travels.

I checked with one of mine and they said they would absolutely reprogram the speed limiter, however adding horsepower was a different matter that would require opening a ticket with International. I'm doubtful anything will come of that.

Yeah changing HP levels is usually more complex since a lot of times you need to beef up cooling capacity and change up shifting patterns. I can see why they wouldn't do that.

There's some people around that can reprogram the ECM remotely, you just need a decent Internet connection at the bus and the right cables and a laptop.

Try to find independent shops in your area that handle lots of International stuff. They might be a lot more willing to help you than the dealer.

There's a couple in my area that specialize in T44E/7.3 Powerstroke/DT466 stuff.

I appreciate the help- but this forum is my last resort, not my first. I have called or emailed every shop within 50 miles of me to no avail. So the only option I see at this point is an individual with the plug and know how willing to help. Thanks

Maybe the Kid will share the steps to do it, and you'll run into one of us who have a Nexiq clone in the future?
