It runs and drives!! Here's a link to a YouTube video. I attached a couple of pictures that show my favorite thing, boost at idle, no turbo lag between shifts. I still have few wires and hoses to tidy up.

Ken, it has been great to follow your project, both on the boards, via email, and via phone. 

There is no way that folks can understand how much you have researched the electronics of the engine. 

I am so tickled that your first drive went so well.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Ken:  What an amazing job you have done.  But where is the oil leaking on the floor?

Hey Ken,
Looks great! I was in Murfreesboro this past weekend with FIU's track team. They kept me hoping the whole weekend except when the coach adjusted the schedule for me so I could watch/record the Daytona 500. (but since it rained out that didn't happen either!)

I thought about calling you Sunday as that was the only free time I had, but figured you had better things to do on a Sunday than fool with someone else's bus!

Thanks for all of the complements. I'm working on some cardboard Eagle emblems to hide my Prevost emblems, if I can get them painted silver by May I hope to see some of you at the Eagles Rally on Saturday. That is if Eric will let me in.

Ken  You and your Prevo do not have to worry. They let Huggy in at the last rally.
Had a great time. fine bunch of folks.

Might make you park off to the side but since it is a prevo maybe not in the same class as a old gm.

      Really nice work, Ken.  I'm staring right down both barrels of having to install an engine in a bus not designed for it, so I'm *very* interested in the issues you had to deal with and how you overcame any problems.
