That's good! I guess it would have something to do with taking the whole corporation down the massive EGR route. lol I'm going to link to this on the mechanic's forum. Thanks for posting!

After 3 years of ragging on other mfg's EPA technology they have decided maybe Cummins is not so bad? This will be interesting, with 45 yrs. in and around the school bus industry this will be the first time that all mfg's offer the same engine. Now maybe body quality and longevity will become how purchasing decisions are made? Good Luck IC.

The bus industry is so complicated it's no telling what this will do. Some districts/ contractors buy based solely on price, others only plan to keep their units 5 years or less, still others look at overall cost of ownership. If everyone kept a unit for 15 years and put a couple hundred thousand miles on them IC would not be the choice to go with. On the other hand, if everyone kept them that long IC would change their M.O.

This is hilarious! It was not even 18 months ago that the IC sales reps had anti SCR stickers on their trucks and were telling us how unreliable and toxic SCR is. Now they are selling Cummins Engines!!! Holy cow talk about a 180.
