i've been making the 'sucking air' argument since my bro first mentioned this problem a couple of years ago; and with your help i might be getting somewhere with it.
my last job was in an international with an isx which i thought was a decent engine. cummins, detroit, and cat have all made decent engines over the years, but the engine that delivered to my specs was a '97 460 mack. i'm sure volvo has 'improved' that engine to the point of being just like the rest.
i thank the two of you for your help/info. spring here in southern missouri. i've been in my summer-time shorts for almost a month now.
None of the Mack guys I know like the new Molvos compared to the old Mack engines. Good power on the dyno, but not on the road.
