I agree with Dave-why not here? I am working on a review/technical article on the famous E9 engine with the help of several engineers from the Hagerstown engine plant. I am planning to visit the plant at the end of September and should have something written shortly after that. I do have some material organized already on the development of Mack V8 engines but very little on the E9.I have not yet decided on a complete review of Mack V8 engines or to just focus on the E9.

Best regards,

John

On your technical article about the MACK E9 V8 engine just remember to mention how these engines are modified and make from 800 HP all the way to 4,000 HP!!! Mack E9 is a dominant force on the HOT ROD SEMI /SUPER RIG SEREIES.

There is an AUSTRALIAN truck that was built for drag racing named BANDAG TITAN (MIGHTY MACK for some cases) this race truck is for sale and its best elapsed time on the 1/4 mile is 11.61 acordig to Owner Adam Gafiero. The BANDAG MIGHTY MACK was retired they say because "lack of sponsorship".But to me they retire the truck because with just one MACK E9 engine (2,000+ HP) it was superior then the other truck the BANDAG team has, the BANDAG BULLET wich uses 2 V8 DETROIT 8V92 engines to get the same HP the MACK has with one engine.

I should have the BMT Wiki back up and running soon! That would be a great place for some E9 tech info!
