New member in Nashville!

How yíall doing!? My name is dan, my wife and I just purchased our second bus.
It is a 2004 IC 72 passenger. It has a dt466e and Allison 2000. Planning on a toy hauler/ motorhome conversion


We are looking for a local person to assist in removing the road speed governor, and maybe bump the horsepower a tad.

Any suggestions?

LOL i dont think there were any computers on that bus!!


th the OP - yeppers you got plenty of room to accept a higher speed limiter and some extra ponies.. what is your engine rated now? (there will be a sticker on the valve cover with a cut-out showing the actual HP rating and other boxes show you the availables in that family...

I’m unsure of the horse power, I’ve only owned it a few hours. It’s a great bus so far, a helluva lot nicer than the caterpillar powered Thomas it’s replacing

Should be a label on the valve cover showing HP/TQ ratings

210 is the top end of the Low torque version.. I cant turn the compuiter up any higher with predictable results.. if it was my bus id probably crank it up higher but I watch it like a hawk..



the hardware in the HO versions is different.. so without it being mine to break I dont like the idea of punching it out to 230 or 250

With my bus capable of 90+mph as is in 5th, I see no need to bump the power, which would probably hurt MPG's.

Funny- I like my cat way better than the 04 Dt466E powered bus I had. We did the opposite of each other and have the opposite results lol.
Make sure you keep you coolant 100% perfect. Its the most crucial bit of maintenance on that engine aside from making sure the oil level stays full.

I'm fairly sure there's a 230hp standard torque version.

There are six versions of the International DT466 engine as of 2010. The 210-horsepower engine produces peak horsepower at 2,300 rpm and 520 pound-feet of torque at 1,400 rpm. The 220-horsepower engine produces 540 pound-feet of torque; the 225-horsepower version produces 560 pound-feet of torque; one 245-horsepower version produces 620 pound-feet of torque and the higher-end 245-horsepower version produces 660 pound-feet of torque. The highest powered DT466 engine produces 260 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque. All horsepower peaks listed are at 2,300 rpm and torque peaks at 1,400 rpm. The International DT466 delivers 220 horsepower and 540 pound-feet of torque in the 2004 CXT pickup.


I realize this may not cover the earlier ones.

Good to know the good rep of this motor, 90% of them still run at 300k, and the B50 cycle is at 450K
