Some E-9 Questions in Engine and Transmission Posted March 26, 2008 · Edited March 26, 2008 by brutus998 What are you wanting to do with your V-8? Are you wanting to just play, or play and work both? You will have fun. My family has owned a bunch of E-9's. My uncle had the V-8 Mack known as "Bad Dog". He sold that to Greg Dean in Virginia. Dean has done pretty well with it. He also sold Fred Sanders his "Silver Bullet #2." My uncle just bought Ross Castner's Black Dog this past summer. When my uncle pulled up into the parking lot with that superliner(Black Dog) I couldnt believe it. Under the hood had Four turbos, headers, the whole nine.
