There was a few French Army Twin Turbo 1050 H.P. E9 tank engines advertised last year for $30,000 USD each. E9 are hard to find and parts are getting hard to find and expensive. Those that have them horde them or ask for the moon when they sell them.

Sounds like here in Australia how ever the engines i do see advertised are less then half the price of what we have to fork out for them.

I know of a 525hp v8 in perth, guy is asking $12,000. 

Only problem is it's came out of a salt truck. Getting bolts out of it becomes a problem so I've been told.

That's a hell of a first step out the front door.

The first steps not that bad.   Putting the pole light up was the worst part!image.thumb.jpg.f0e4e1a3fad559cbfcf8d0f9cc885ae7.jpg

When I lives in Ohio in the 1990's I was on the hunt for E9's and there are a few large truck salvage yards there. I could maybe get one or two of them at that time BUT every E9 these yards could get was put in containers and went to Australia for $5000 USD a piece back 25 years ago. The point is that most complete E9's that are from salvage yards are already on the boat coming your way. Most guys here are not going to pay $5000 for a core engine even now then $8-10K for parts plus labor to rebuild it. I am sure the current  Australian price is more than the $5K per engine and the used truck parts trade to down under has been a very tight closed business for years. It can be expensive to get an engine that is already slated to come your way in the first place.

Engines that are already out of the truck are not usually available and guarded for parts. Complete engines are around but usually still in trucks. 2 out of 3 MH Ultraliners had them for power and can be had for as low as a few thousand dollars on up. Start searching the web for them and figure how to get the engines out and in containers. Happy E9 hunting :thumb:
