    Be forwarned. If the truck is not a factory glider that swap is technically illegal.

    Pretty much any Cat is decent, minus the SDP prefix ones.

    1lw makes it a 3406e

    Excellent engine, assuming it was taken care of or you spend the money on a good rebuild.

    Not a ton of confidence in the swapper/person selling the engine, fresh paint is nice, but that nearly looks like someone dipped it in yellow

    1LW was the best of the 40 pin ECM engines in many peoples opinion. However there is good and bad in all.....at its age it’s only as good as the rebuilder
