I just got done building a E450 micro bus into a RV/toy hauler. My goal was to build a rv that could haul a 26' 4000# trailer with 2 Polaris RZRs on it. Roughly 10,000#s total. But after todays 90 degree, 3.5hr maiden voyage, I'm a little concerned that I might be asking too much out of her. All temps (EOT,ECT,and Trans Temp) were high from what I've been reading and I was empty (no trailer and tanks were empty). I've attached a picture of my tuner. At the bottom of every gauge is the min-max numbers so you can see where its been.
Some info on the bus
2010 Blue Bird but I believe the E450 cab/chassis is 2009
Jody at DP-Tuners tune (dd and a tow tune)
Im thinking next upgrades will be:
Larger aux transmission cooler
Bullet Proof Diesel 6.0L to 7.3L fan Conversion
I only have 1 transmission filter (in the pan) so I might add a aux one
1) Is my goal achievable (towing 10K)?
2) Should I bypass the radiator portion of my transmission cooler and just run the large aux cooler?
3) Any problems with the listed upgrades?
4) Do I need to add anything else to that list?
I know this is a lot but I have a trip to Tennessee planned in 3 weeks and need to figure this out asap or prep the ole 7.3L for the trip. Let me know if I need to move this to a different section. Thanks guys [ATTACH][ATTACH][ATTACH]
