Opinions on max DT210 engine?

Found a front engine 2009 IC bus that has everything I want,air brakes, it's 31ft long and it looks great.

But I have not found any info on this engine. I know maxforce is cancer and Cummins is great. Cat is expensive and dt466 is good

I'm no expert on engines, but I've never seen that engine. It's probably a Maxxforce DT in 210hp, given the make and year of the bus.

And he would be right. If the engine's name has Maxx or MaxxForce in it, just say no. Navistar is bad news after '07.

I was under the impression that the maxxforce is the new dt from international. Is there a problem with the new dt466?

Oh. That's the difference. My dt466e is awesome. I rebuilt it in frame pistons, sleeves , bearings and all. And i have little to no experience. A vw and a 350. Haha
