So far the wiring looks like just two pins different between the gas and diesel body harness. The idiot light are all wrong but I scored a dash panel for a c-note. I am also using an Android tablet with engine control software to add monitoring and on the fly adjustment capability with a Bully Dog tuner. I hope the motor home your looking at has a bigger engine bay I had to lift the body off to get at everything.
Interesting... I've been under the impression they were diffrent. Guess that means that the bell housing pattern is the same from v-10 to PSD? Wonder if the same holds true for the 6sp manual trans?
Perhaps the diffrences are internal... I bet the shift points for the gasser will be higher, and the diesel will wind out to redline before the trans shifts.
Either way, good luck with your swap... hope it works out for ya!
