the 'E' is the fact the engine is fully electronic control.. the Cat-3126, DT-466E, T-444E(Powerstroke 7.3), VT-365(Powerstroke 6.0), MaxxForce 7 all share the HEUI style of fuel management.

Ok. I have it confused with the Cummins style pre-common rail systems.

I've seen photos of this and thought it was a tiny home on a trailer.

I don't like his transition; too steep for my liking. The interior, especially the ceiling is awesome. Needs more windows in the rear of the bus. I think I like what's going on with the chimney. Looks like it branches off for heating thru the curve of the walls. I hadn't thought of that. I was thinking of wrapping it with copper coil and using the water for heating tho.


Very jealous of the life their daughter is going to live.

cummins are one thing I know very little about.. im sure the all mechanicals are similar to other all mechanical direct injection engines, Id be interested to learn how cummins electromic fuel management works.

No very little about the common rail Style. I do know they still require a high pressure fuel pump. The injectors are controlled by solenoids. In the standard mechanical and earlier electronic... There is a Bosch rotary pump that fires each injector in time with the motor.

All I know is if my electricity goes out, engine stops. That's what the E stands for to me lol.

This really is a sweet build but the amount of money he threw into it is a bit crazy.
