International MXT.. Engine and trans swap

I have an International MXT... I recently blew the VT365 and have been scratching my head with what to do.. I put 127k on the odometer but with the 54" tires I have calculated the milage to be around 175k. Either way its no good, I want some HP, Torque and a tranny that will not have to get looked at non stop.. My Idea with the help of a few people on the boards is to go with a DT466(93-97) and an Eaton Fuller 10 speed. I no longer sit in the non stop traffic of LA so the 10 Speed should be killer. I need Ideas and some help. I had PPE and Inglewood Transmission do some work on the tranny and it has been pretty untouchable for 75k miles... I just do not know if I can make it shift and work properly going to a non electronic engine. Any thoughts? This should be a killer project and can not wait to see how it comes out. Thanks!

I'm exited to get started. Saw in your signature that you have some PPE stuff. Joe built a duramax diesel boat for me. Good times.

Planning to go with a D466P and Eaton Fuller RoadRanger 10 Speed... Still working with everyone to figure out what Trans will be best for what I am doing.

You will! I will have it at Sema this year and in Cali for a bit. Ill take it up to my scrap yard in Bakersfield... We will hook up. I have some more questions for you when you have time Dale.

I want to possibly do a twin turbo and was looking at the Fr-15210b. Well if I go 5-600hp it seems like I need something to handle the 1500 ft/lbs of torque

Remember, an NV 4500 is not rated for the 1200+ hp that some guys send thru them. I'm back from vacation now.
