RE: Insulating the engine bay
I'll measure mine tonight, if nobody else pops in to give us the answer.

RE: Insulating the engine bay
Mine is 40"D x 26"H x 30"W. There's a 30"W x 26"H panel across the back and a small amount around the front enclosure. So each wall is about 7.25 sqft, while the ceiling is about 6 sqft and the back wall is closer to 5.5 sqft. So total, there's about 26 sqft. There's 8 sqft per panel, so I'd need probably 4 panels to do with. Might as well add 1 for safety, so call it 5 panels total. Does that sound right?

Plenty of examples of burned 380's stacks. Also if the exhaust system needs replacing consider stainless.....lower temps and I believe David has a vendor with the LXI parts already done, ship them you 95 stuff and
Party on!

John,

BHTubes does supply stainless exhaust pipe sections for your coach. I worked with them many moons ago on both S60 equipped WB stainless exhaust pieces and the LXi stainless pieces. For the LXi they also supply stainless Charge Air Cooler and Coolant System pipes. http://www.bhtubes.com/shop/category.aspx?catid=171

And, don't forget the Brady muffler supplied by Pittsburgh Power. It's a straight thru design that takes the edge off the jake brake. Great free flow performance without the hassle of the law! http://www.pittsburghpower.com/

And, as usual I have NFI in any of these goodies. Smile

RE: Insulating the engine bay
I looked at Pittsburgh Power a while back, thinking about one of their Powerboxes. They're supposed to really wake up a 60. Papa Nealy (of bbq fame) has one on his coach and really raves about it. Is the Brady muffler listed on their site?

Three years ago it was a custom build for me. I think it's part of their standard line up now. Here it is: http://www.pittsburghpower.com/product_i...f7f9f7e16b

John, I think I bought a case of 6. I paid $14.45 per can.

RE: Insulating the engine bay
I am in the middle of redoing the insulation in my engine bay and I can tell you its a swine of a project. If you don't get the surface nice and clean first, free of the old gunk and glue/adhesive, it can make attaching the new stuff quite a bear. I'm now in the process of stripping all that gunk off and trying to get to a fairly cleaning base before I go further. I attached 3 pieces, two of which held well, one which did not. Hopefully the surface cleanliness is the problem, will know soon.
