Any Ektachrome stock will work in E6 chemistry, regardless of gauge or type,
'work' meaning you will get an acceptable image, 'acceptable' meaning you
should produce an image that resembles what you shot.

Beyond that--in theory--any stock in any chemistry will yield you an image,
albiet to varying degrees of accurate reproduction in terms of color and
resolution. For example, one can process Kodachrome in b/w chemistry, but
the image will slide off onto your hands until dried. However such 'veiling'
can be beautiful. On the other hand, processing b/w film in color chemistry
will always yield no image, because the bleach step removes the silver,
leaving nothing behind (as there are no dyes in first place).
