I am buying a New 2009 389 Pete, 18 speed and 46 rears. The truck has an ISX 485. I am wanting the dealer to turn it up to a 550, which I am willing to pay for. Cummins says I doesn`t need it because the 485 and the 550 both have 1850 lbs of torque and I wouldn`t see a difference. They also say there may be a warranty issue. I haul in the mountains and now have a 2005 Pete with a 550 Cat. I hear great things about the ISX but want all the pulling power I can get but, I don`t want to hurt the motor. Should I have it turned up or will the 485 have enough. I would like to hear form someone who has driven both or at least had one turned up. Thanks

'Listed a Perkins T6.354 on DieselEngineTrader and sold it after 5 month. With a listing fee of $5.00 per month and no commission, it was much cheaper and more effective than the magazine we also used.'
