RJ, my trans is a HT740. You knew that, but forgot and typed V730. Isn't the aging brain a treat!

save your 80 for 1%-2% grades...down hill..
But, do tell, where is 80 mph in a bus legal ?


From El Paso to Junction Tx on I 10 some of the turn pikes are 85 mph and they do run the speed limit it's scary to have a 50,000 bus pass you loaded with tourist when you are driving 70 to 75 mph

In Nevada, South Dakota, and possibly Utah and Wyoming.

Usually, I'm at 75 mph; again, I would rarely actually go 80 mph. However, I'd like to save fuel at both 75 and 80.

I would love a smaller turbo!  This one is huge, and I am going to have to move things for it to fit this time...

I'm not going to do 80 mph all the time, only when it is legal and I deem it safe in my best judgment to do so. I want the ability to go 80 mph.

The vehicle weight is 35,100 lb, GVWR 48,000 lb. I don't tow and I don't have slides. Tires are 315/80R22.5, diameter 42.3". Engine is a Detroit Diesel 6067BK28 12.7L rated at 430hp. I understand fuel economy will be poor at high speeds, but I'm looking to save whatever fuel I can. Again, I usually only run flat routes.

Something else to consider when you're going 80mph is your tires are rated for a maximum speed of 75.
