Mack's E9 Series V8 Engines With Chassis Mounted Charge Air Cooling 820030
A new 998 CID V8 engine series has been developed by Mack Trucks, Inc. to supplement its line of heavy duty diesel engines. These engines, the E9 Series, are available in two configurations--a 400 bhp (298 kW) high torque rise version and a 440 bhp (328 kW) conventional torque backup version.
Increased horsepower and improved fuel economy were achieved through the development of a chassis mounted charge air cooler and a new four-valve cylinder head. In addition, significant durability improvements were obtained due to the reduced thermal loadings resulting from the lower charge air temperatures. Additional noteworthy features include a new injection pump, improved lube oil system, advanced piston design, and proper selection of seals and gasket materials.
