Odin

Recently my fiance, and I bought a 2002 International Genesis with the 7.6L and allison md3060.
-First up was titling, which was easily accomplished in the state of TN with a sworn statement and a multipurpose title application. Easy Peasy the "bus" is now a motorhome/RV
-Next up was the removing of the seats...dear sweat baby jesus that would have sucked without a cutting torch and a good tip!
-Then comes the laminated floor, and rotting nasty subfloor! Pulling that up was a nightmare as I'm sure most of you have discovered by now!

next up is pulling the metal floor up in certain spots as the flooring cross members are rotting in a few places as well I have to do some cutting and welding in patches in the floor as around the wheel well is a bit rotted and towards the back of the bus by the rear wall.

future plans- 18-24" roof raise, unlocking or replacing the TCM to allow 6th gear as 2500rpm at 65mph is a bit obnoxious, framing in the entire bus for our need's then 100% closed cell foam for those cold cold trips up north for some snowmobiling in the winter, I'm also picking up some Li-po batteries from a hyundai hybrid as I found a lot of 72 for a very good price all verified good.

The Alfather gave an eye to gain knowledge.
Just 'looked' to work to me.
Then again, my depth-perception isn't what it once was...

Well found the TCM, I'll be pulling it out and sending it off to PCMperformance to get 6th gear unlocked and be able to keep up with traffic finally

opening 6th will help your fuel mileage, I wouldn't expect a great increase in top speed. If so, my bus will easily do 100mph. Keep us posted on PCM, they didn't have the software to do my 99, it can't be much different than an 02.

The biggest difference is WTEC2 or 3, and either 250kb or 500kb for memory. The 2 or 3 distinguishes the data port for being able to open it while on the bench

That I am not sure...I believe 2000-2001? If your shifter is a push button with red numbers supposedly it’s a WTEC 3

Project Odin is back in its way. I’ve started removing more of the interior paneling, old junky insulation, and rusted floor pan. It will be done no later than August as well be taking it on a nice long trip to Sturgis South Dakota for the 80th bike week! Anyone else heading out there in skoolies?
