Not very good, most likely around 6 to 8 like all others. What exactly do you mean when you say bus?

Too many variables. "530ktm" probably gave you the best guestimate.

Our '98 35' Santara got less than 7 and usually 4 to 6.5. It was a tag axle unit and usually towing and '95 Honda Odyssey on a dolly. Not much, if any improvement with the Banks kit but it was nice to have the extra power.
