The glorious 1998 BlueBird TC1000 has a few nice features that should be highlighted. This 25ft class c “handi-bus” is powered by an inline 6 Cummins 5.9L 24V ISB Diesel f-beast, according to some random stats pulled from Wikipedia it makes about 215 HP, and around 420 Lb-ft of torque. Connecting this power to the rear wheels is a Allison AT545, 4 forward gears, and apparently also some sort of reverse action.

Helping make some (read: most) of that torque is the Holset HX35W turbocharger. How much boost it is making, who knows. we should probably install some sort of boost gauge.

We decided that we wanted some of the heat from the turbo to actually, you know, stay in the turbo – so we ended up purchasing a sketch Chinese brand turbo blanket. For the price it worked incredibly well.
