    Is their much price difference between different horsepower engines of the same model. For example going from say a 430HP Cat C-13 to a 525HP Cat C-13 and so on? Just wondering if the price is muh different because you are still using basically the same motor?

    There is a price difference. For the example you used it would probably be around $1500 more. The big difference is going from say a Cummins ISL 400 to an ISM 450 because you have to upgrade the entire driveline to the bigger series. We have two C-13's on order right now in Spartans.
