Looks Like I Sold a C7

First one to show up had cash and we settled at $4k. I'm happy, he's happy. He's happy with the govern because he says he always drives slow.

Here she is going down the road to a new Skoolie home.

My 2003 BBAA has a 250hp tune 5.9 and it's surprisingly stout.

@Marc congrats on the quick turnaround. All-in you're up around a grand? that'll buy some shiny parts for your bus.

I wouldn't own a C7 but I wouldn't begrudge anyone else doing so.
I feel the same way. I own a 3126, which is fine. A C7 wouldn't be my choice, but mainly because when an injector goes bad (and its a HEUI engine, so injector replacement isn't a matter of if, but when) you will need Cat ET to program in a time while, whereas I can change a 3126 injector in a parking lot that doesn't even have power, or perhaps even a friends farm....(I speak from experience)

I like the absolute simplicity of the 3126. Just the bare minimum of electronics required to make it work, nothing else.

With that said, change your oil and filters every 5K and the C7 should take good care of you. Enjoy the new bus!!
