66rmack Posted June 8, 2017 Share Posted June 8, 2017 Hi everyone, I'm in the parts gathering process Superliner. My engine is a E6 300 4V with a 9 speed maxitorque. It seems to run well and sounds good but, has a more than fair amount of blow by and when the temp goes down it doesn't want to start. We are talking 30-40 deg f. Anyway getting back to my ? I found a 79 E9 400 with low mi it looks to be complete with fan alternator turbo ect.. they want $6500 for it. and i know rebuilding my E6 can add up to that easily. Would it be worth the swap and would it bolt to my trans? I haven't seen the engine in person, is that year a year to stay clear of? It would be going into a 89 truck if that makes a difference. Also it looks to have a luberfiner filter could that be converted to spin on filters? The truck is just a toy I figured a good running used motor should last a long time plus I'd rather have the E9 even though its just to have it. Thanks in advance for the help. -Pete Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
