My baby is only little guy with a fresh Detroit 8V71.

Light weight at only 42,000 lbs GVW.

But she is 40 ft long and you can live in her year round even here in ski country.

Love the sound of the big 2 stroke when she winds out. Has an Allison Close ratio 5 speed full lockup auto.

Dingo this Shane any relation of yours?



If I sistered the frames and added a small "bustle" Ya think I could stuff this monster in the back of the Prevost?

PS It has 4 inch pipes and 30 inch long factory high flow muffler cans. Total separate dual exhaust each 4 feet long.

Straight 8V71N no turbos to mask the bark of the exhaust.

It is a bit loud if you are behind her. LOL

Having the 8V71 forty feet away from the operator is definitely the way to go.

You got that one right. :D:D

It is amazing how much the twin turbos quiet one of these down.

But with the CRD close ratio box I really don't need to add the turbos.

65 mph is plenty fast for me in the rig. I gotta figure out how to bring the Jag VSP along behind it is all.
