Ya, thats the one.

Here are some pictures of it in the winter. All of our students cut their teeth on it, summier and winter.

I probably have been over that bitch a couple of thousand times, half summer, half winter. And it was with A-trains in the middle of the night.

The 2 guys I know who have them love them. They say they get really good fuel mileage them also.
I still haven't been converted. Still like the Kitty's.
I think every motor has it's pro's and con's.. It's just personal preference and what you wanna believe.

Just checked out your web page..

16mi of 8% then another 8 of 6% :shock:

It makes Donner look like the Kiddie Hill.

How often do you see & smell drivers smoking the breaks?

Default hey

my brother recently bought a truck with the same motor in it, he says it runs great on the big road but when it comes to hills, it dies down, and also the fan sensor went bad on his about 50,000 miles, and also like i read in another post, the jake breaks are whimpy, they dont go bum bum bumbum they more less whistle, and they dont do much in the meens of slowing down, but one good advantage is its very quiet!!!!!!

It should work very well, maybe the driver isn't using it properly?
