Went from full mechanical injection with the Bosch P pump (p7100) to the semi electronic Vmac 1&2 with the electronic gov housing. Fly by wire. Timing controlled with econovance. Ran off of oil psi with a gear on a swedge basically to advance/retard timing as needed, to satisfy the EPA. Then came fully electronic Etech with unit pumps ran off the cam. 

 

Really it's apples to oranges comparison the old E-7 to the E-tech. The best engine mack ever made was the mechanical E-7 and vmac 1&2. The E tech doesn't even sound like a mack except a tiny bit at idle.
