I haven't had a single problem with my Cat 9 400hp. It runs like a top and pulls strongly. I can cruise easily at 75MPH if I cared to with the H3 in tow.
Just keep the fuel filters changed and you'll be good.

I have the Cat C9 400 and have zero issues. The problems that I heard come from the 425 HP C9.

My C-9 runs great, the only problem is my oil pressure is to high on a cold start (125lbs) so I plug it in for hour and if the weather is cold out 2 hours. Next oil change may go from 15w40 to 5w40. By plugging it in I get the pressure under 100lbs, this is from my Silverleaf.
I change my oil at 5k or one a year because of the HUIE pump and fuel filters at 10k and use only Advanced Efficiency filters and send my oil samples into Peterson Cat.
