Brother owns one, what a money pile to make that motor "bullet proof". What are you doing, head studs?

Actually I work for the local school district here in town, it's an International school bus. Lol
These engines are Crap! We've rebuilt 3 already and this is the 4th one.

I work at an international dealership as a service tech assistance and I have only seen one Vt365 and I had to put an injector in it. It was also on the drivers side so I had to take off the ECM.
