I think that would be the ISC 8.3L engine? The 5.9L is now available in 360 hp, but I don't think it was in 2008. And the ISL started at 370 HP.

I have the Cummins ISC engine 2006 model. I put a MP-8 chip on the engine. Very easy installation but way too soon to be able to give a report. If you do get this chip spring for the 40' cable so you can controll it from inside while driving. I have seen a difference in take-off and a difference in economy but I have only put about 1000 miles on the chip. I also had the coach die going down the freeway in South Dakota shortly after a heavy rainstorm. The coach would not start and there were no warnings. After I unhooked the chip coach started back up and we were able to continue the trip. I will keep you posted. BTW the chip was just over $500 for purchase.

the MY 2008 isc is ecm reprogramable, i havent found a chip so to speak.
however i have found a few places that will reprogram the ecm to allow you to remove the dpf pipe and go without it....but for 2500 i choose to save the money and spend it for fuel
