Can someone help me determine if this bus has the bad Maxxforce engine or not?

How do I figure out if this bus has a Maxxforce engine or not? I have the VIN. I can PM it. Itís a 2006 with a DT-466. It says Maxxforce DT on one of the VIN checks but I wasnít sure because the bad ones started in 2007. I wanted to make sure this wasnít one of those.

Engine Displacement (CC)
7636.371824

Displacement (CI) 466

Displacement (L) 7.636371824

If you have a pic of the engine - If it is painted blue, it's still the DT variant. If it came from the factory painted black, RUN! It's the full-on MaxxForce.

If it's a 2006, it is probably a DT466e, not a Maxxforce.
Is the Maxxforce DT466 bad or not? Depends who you ask. There are issues with the EGR cooler. Fixable. The bad reputation of this engine is mainly because 1. the Maxxforce 11 and Maxxforce 13 were subject of a lawsuit for EGR related issues (these engines have nothing in common with the Maxxforce DT466) and 2. a LOT of people who never actually owned a Maxxforce repeat what they read everywhere. That's how it is nowadays

All that. Ditto.
Similar to a young man I met in basic training who had never met a 'real live' black person. Boy he sure had alot of (mis)information. Was quite, sure of his beliefs, too. His daddy told him.

Bearing false witness:
Did I, myself witness? No? Then I don't know if the words I speak/write are true. Just gossiping, maybe lying.

If IH or Navistar, block will be:
Black =MF
Blue = DT(e)
IH Red = Agro
