Excellent advice. There are enough buses out there. No need to add an engine swap to what is already a massive project.
To each their own, but I wouldn't even consider a gas-engined bus. There really is no comparison. I enjoy being able to get up a mountain faster than I can walk, and the reliability of a diesel is also on a whole nother level. My bus is a 91 with a dt466 (super reliable and lotsa power) with a MT643 (lockup overdrive). It only has 150k on it and they were selling it for $1800. Being EMP proof is a fun bonus, lol...
