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!

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.

Exhaust temp, and possibly drive pressure.

Drive pressure is tapped in to the exhaust manifold. Basically another booost gauge, but reads the pressure it takes to spin all them turbos. More of a tuning tool.

Should I get a 60 or 100psi boost gauge and how big for the drive pressure? Thanks Dale!

Get the 100 pounds, since you may sneak past 60 pounds.

My transmission came in Last week, went with a RoadRanger RTX 10 speed.

I have a few questions on my engine... For the rebuild, I am trying to get the HT rebuild kit as I am going to turn the engine up to about 500 HP, International is having some issues w no VIN from a truck to know exactly what I need. I have a 95 year model engine all Mchanical. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

surprising there's no advice/comments. I came up with a 13mm pump and injectors, stock turbo on top of an HT3B/26, and a HT530 inframe kit with crank so it gets 2 pc steel pistons to survive a few degrees of EGT.

Thanks for the help, I am looking into HT530 inframe Kit on that list you sent over as well as fuel pump and injectors. How much boost should I run with the 530 kit?

Countdown to SEMA!
