This is the first classified post I've seen in a long time that has all the relevant info without any additional fluff. Thank you.

I'm not in the market, so I'm breaking the "If you are not interested in purchasing, donít post" rule, but I just had to say thanks.

Is the bus still for sale? If it is, what modifications were made to increase the power? We're interested if still available.

Yes, the bus is still for sale.

The ECM and IDM (FICM) have been reflashed with a modified strategy. This has the capability of running up to 450 HP on Level 7, but is currently on Level 5 which is 400 HP. We will include the programming equipment in the sale so that whoever purchases it can adjust the power at their discretion.

The bus was purchased so that we could do some development work on our programming software communications. We've only put about 600 miles on it since we purchased it, and much of that was actually driving it up from Central Florida to North Georgia.

The bus is solid and it's straight. If I didn't already have a 45' Toy Hauler, we'd have just built this out. Instead, we are looking to sell the bus in order to purchase a crew-cab 5th wheel Navistar 4000 or 5000 series.

If you have any questions, you can reach me at the office. http://gopowerhungry.com

Thanks for your interest.

I can confirm that running an Orion by powerhungry on Level 5 takes the funfactor of driving a bus to a new height!!

Why the difference in the years on the engine, 2005 versus chassis 2007? Everything I read said to stay away from the 466E, why did you guys select this one?

The bus came with the 2005 engine in it already, so that's what it is. I'm sure it was just a re-power/replacement engine, but there's no documentation or history as to why. I can tell you it runs like a champ.

As for the engine itself, there is nothing wrong with an EGR engine. In fact, they are actually capable of making more power than the earlier CEC-I versions due to the changes in injectors and engine management systems. I'd run this over a 1998-2004 version any day of the week. Major differences:

PROS:
  • Gen 2 Spool Valve Injectors (with larger injectors available)
  • Separate ECM ind IDM for more precise fuel control
  • Variable Geometry Turbo

CONS:
  • EGR System

The benefits far outweigh the negatives of the EGR system.

The ones you REALLY want to stay away from are the MaxxForce applications as they have EGR, DPF, and after 2010 they also have DEF after-treatment. Those are a mess.

I hope this is helpful.

PHP. It’s really common for school bus engines to lag behind in years from the title. School busses are sold WAY ahead of their model years..
for instance the 2023 busses have been shipping since October or November if 2021.. that’s right.. 2023s..

So you can see how it’s easy to have a 2005 engine in an 07 bus. That bus likely got built early in the model year..


Chassis can often sit as well . I’ve seen chassis sit for over 12 months before being used..

I was not aware of that, but I guess that makes sense. I really couldn't see how a school bus would have gone through an engine that early, but you never know.

Anyway, thank for the info. You rock!
