    I stumbled across some photos last night, and I thought ya'll might enjoy looking at a couple of pics I took of a 400 hp, twin-turbo 6.5L that is made by Peninsular Diesel. They build them for marine use.

    I took these pics at the Diesel Page Rendezvous in Dayton, Ohio, in the fall of 2001. Besides looking at all the GM diesel trucks that were there, we also toured the Duramax engine plant in Moraine, along with the AM General engine plant that still makes the 6.5L for military use. I tell you what, standing there in the parking lot the day that 30 or 40 Chevy diesel trucks pulled in will be one day I'll never forget! It was awesome!

    That looks sweet, but how much do they build them for?

    I'm not sure on the price. They're designed to run for as long as needed in marine applications. They need to be reliable so that you don't break down in the middle of a lake or ocean. They're actually quite dependable.

    http://www.peninsulardiesel.com/ for more information.

    I believe the 400 hp model is more of a show piece. The 340 hp is the largest one I found quickly scanning their web site:

    I like that header design.Wonder would they fit on truck?Yesterday I was looking on my trucks engine compartment,and it looks like they might fit with little mods.

    I was going to start my turbo project little by little,starting from headers.I've always liked twin-turboed V8 engines,so thats the way to go /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    And especially twin-turbo /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif,that would be way cool /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
