I had his system, (ECU, Turbo, waste gate, pyrometer) on a 350 HP Cummins ISC engine.
Made a HUGE difference however I don't think he has anything for your ISL engine but I could be wrong. Give them a call (800) 601-8072

Welcome to the forum. Lots of great people with lots of knowledge to share.



Please forgive the directness, but with 400 ponies under the bed, why more?


Bear in mind I don't have a DP (yet), but 400 HP in a coach seems adequate?



But then I am the same one that had a 425 CAT rebuilt to 500+, but then I was also going down the road at 84K a lot of the time.

Glad to have you here in the forum with us. You're gonna like it here.

My suggestion is to call Banks and ask.

Happy Trails!!!

Not sure what you want to do but you have to consider to major things - engine cooling and the transmission. The Coach probably has an Allison 3000 transmission and that engine probably generates enough torque to be at or near the maximum rating on the transmission. Later 450 hp versions of that engine are at the maximum torque rating.

Did the same with our '02 DSDP, and, again, I don't think they make anything for the ISL.
Cummins may be able to uprate it since the 3000 and ISL will go to 450/1200.
