Thanks for the great Info Dave. You are right about the different RPM torque curve. You saved me from making a potentially costly mistake. Thank you!

My 1990 Thomas school bus has a 225 HP turbo 3208 engine, serial # 02Z64243. It is having problems running hot at highway speeds over 2000 RPM. I am looking to replace it.
I have come across a used 250 HP turbo 3208 with low hours. It has a serial #03Z05855. However, the serial number is catagorized as a "Industrial Engine".
Is there a difference in how 3208 "Industrial" and "Truck" engines are built? Would it be wrong for me to consider installing a "Industrial" 3208 in my bus for highway driving?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
