360 HP question

Looked at a 2010 Phaeton today. Forgot to get the model #, but it is a 40'.
Our main reason for trading is to get more power for hills, mountains and more weight allowance. We were really thinking of getting a 400 HP, ,so my question...for those of you with the 360 HP, how does it do for power - especially in mountains? Will it really make much difference between 360 to 400? Thanks for your input.

You didn't happen to get the engine model? Cummins ISC ? ISL ?

Skip - nope. We did this so spur of the moment that I think I was stunned we were even doing it. I THINK I read something that it's the ISC. I'll have to find out tomorrow.

The 360 hp is a Cummins ISC with a little over 1000 lb/ft of torque. The 400 hp will be a Cummins ISL with something over 1200 lb/ft of torque. The ratio to look for is the hp/weight. Look for less than 100 pounds per hp.

I think the ISC was available in both HP versions ; different years ; may be up-grade able. torque ratings were the same if memory serves; sometimes it does. I'll dig through the info I have .

2010 info sheet from Cummins, lists ISC the 8.3L. at 380 hp ? 1050 ftlb. torque
ISL 9L. at 400 hp. 1250 ftlb. torque and a 450hp. version available, torque rating the same.
Once again memory failed.

I am pretty sure the Phaeton in that year was 380hp but I could be wrong. The Red's used the 360 HP

The specs I found online for that year say ISC 360 HP 1050 torque. We decided to pass on this one. It was a very nice coach, just not quite what we want.
