Detroit Series 50 8.3l 4 cylinder
...in a 40 foot bus...yet rated at 300 hp and 1,000 ft pounds of torque. Is this engine (combined with the right transmission and rear end) likely to push this mobile brick to 80 mph? I don't intent to do that often - I am looking at 65 mph cruising speed. It is 8.5 liters That's 2 liters per cylinder! Is this a durable engine? What are the differences (practically speaking) between a 4 cylinder 8.5l and a 6 cylinder 8.3?
