Default Peterbilt conversion for sale.

I saw this truck conversion on eBay.com.

2002 K&C CONVERSION - PETERBILT TOTERHOME Completely Remodeled & Updated 2011 2002 K&C CONVERSION - PETERBILT TOTERHOME Completely Remodeled & Updated 2011 | eBay

It has a "Cummins L10 - 1,200lb-ft tq. @ 1,300 rpm, 400hp" and a "Eaton Fuller 9speed "W".

I don't know much about big trucks, their engines, and their transmissions. I want to pull a 24' enclosed race trailer (probably 11,000#) and might move up to a 30' race trailer (15,000#). I fully expect 400hp and 1,200 pounds of torque should get the job done regardless of where I go from Wisconsin.

Is the Cummins L10 a good engine? Is the Eaton Fuller 9 spd "W" a good transmission?

I was kinda looking for a truck with a Cat engine; probably because I could wear the Cat hat when driving.

Looking for comments, opinions, experience, and feelings on the Cummins (or should I keep looking for a Cat) and Eaton.

Thanks!

The Conversion was done by the same guy that did mine, that particular truck has been for sale for a couple years on /off. So he's probably ready to deal.

If I recall correctly there was someone else considering this particular conversion a few months back, and there was a thread discussing the engine/gearing/power . Of course I can't find it at the moment.
