then the scania v8 come out in 1969 it was a killer with 350hp
and they usaly lasted fore 1200.000km but 1500.000km wasnt unusal
and thats pulling 60-65ton
later it got intercooler and elektronic injektion
my father hade on 470hp and that on went at least 1800.000km

in early 2000 the new 16l engine come and i think it will last longer
620hp is the latest hp

My friend has a Scania 400hp V8 -chip truck from early 90's. It has 2 400 000 kilometer in the odometer now. The engine never broke down, they changed the original engine to a rebuild 450 hp V8 a year ago.

Sisu is originally owned by Renault, but didn't Volvo bought Renault's truck business? So therefore Volvo owns Sisu, from pretty far tho.

Smaller Sisu engines is now Volvo 13 litre engines and bigger ones are Cat c15. Scania did never outperform the Cat c18. Sisu had to restrict the c18 torque because the transmissions didn't last the power it was offering.

I'm a cat freak to... I've never operated a c-15 but I know lots of guys who have, as far as I know they are a great engine untill it comes to starting them in cold weather, then they have some problems, I would think that this could be fixed fairly easily :?

My 2001 international has a c15 with a 10 speed tranny and with 900000 miles it still doesnt use a drop of oil and pulls like nobodys business.in my opinion...theres only one real truck engine and thats cat.
