I'm going...

Thanks Gordon, likewise. Surely it can't be this hard! I'm also considering the Allison 1000 swap, since it should bolt up to my BBC. 0.61:1 overdrive, but darn it's pricey when my AT540 is fine.

Wow, that's quite the number. There's pretty widely varied experiences with gassers, but the sticky poll here seems to indicate that most folks are in the 5-7 range, which is fine with me. If I can...

So... OBD-II.

I'm looking at these buses, and I don't see an OBD-II connector anywhere. It's a 2006, so I thought it would have one. Do buses have a different diagnostic connector than cars?

I'm assuming that the A/C compressor is probably engine driven (I don't know), but it's a place to start.

The bus is a long drive away from me, so I am looking for any possible feedback. Thanks!
