Calling all Bus Owners!

Hey Guys!

Our team is getting a bus this year to completely refurbish for RAGBRAI 2017! Exciting right?!

I am curious to know what other teams bus owners opinions are as far as the type of engine we should be looking at.

I am kind of partial to the DT466E but I would like to get input form other RAGBRAIers as far as what has worked and what has failed in the past.

The 466 is a good engine. There’s a billion of them out there. But I wouldn’t turn away from a Cummins either. Detroit? Run like hell.

I am actually selling my bus. It has a DT466E engine too! Runs like a champ! Check out my listing, I’m selling the whole set up!

Best Regards,

Hey Carl,

I am sorry I got to this so late.

We found a bus. Has a Cummins engine and we are digging in on the work now. Thanks for your replys!
