Well my sig says 350 Cummins, but I found out last weekend when looking at the nameplate on the engine block it's actually a 370. Boy do I feel better, been sleeping better all week, and I am sure I feel the difference on the on ramps, and I think I am actually growing hair on my head. Of course now I am worried that it will use more diesel now that I know it's the stronger version.

The 350 Cummins in '02 was an ISC, used in the DSDP's. The MADP was equipped with an ISL with the mininum HP of 370. Your engine is an ISL.

Sorry Peter, it was a stupid joke poking fun at myself.

The point being that the engine didn't change, only my perception of what I had.

Don't be sorry. If we don't poke fun at ourselves, amateurs will do it and they are likely to mess it up. As always, if you want a job done right, do it yourself. Keep up the good work, and keep posting.
