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

'The engine was on other sites, but we received the most calls from DieselEngineTrader.com. We sold it to the first caller-from DieselEngineTrader.com. Also, there was a waiting list on the engine if the first sale fell through! Thanks for the great service!'
