Customer Question

I have bought a tow truck 1997 international 4700 it come with a 444 engine with a 6 speed std trans. Some one has changed it with a dt466e with a 545 auto trans. The owner said he had updated the injectors and ecm. To 250 hp ones? The truck runs good on open road but when I hit a hill it drops to where it almost stops pulling. That loaded about 19000 pounds on it.i did find that the turbo was bad so I replaced with a little larger on that helped on flats and a little on hills.
