I am not sure I understand what this means?
And there is nothing wrong with the T444E
It really all will depend on the transmission mated to it If it is an AT545 (likely) then it will be likely a slow pig
it also has a LOT to do with your rear end gearing so when you get your Vin you call the IH dealer with it and ask what trans and what rear end is on the lineset ticket.
our bus has the T444E (7 window Vista) as I purposely sought that motor out. But it came with the AT545 so I did a custom trans swap to solve that. not for everyone's skill, even mechanics. it's a one off now
