    Its not a 6.5, its a 6.2. And the reasoning for the twin pumps is simple, a DB2 just cant flow enough fuel. So instead of figuring out a way to get a custom pump to flow enough, he just doubled them up.

    Here's his tractor, pre twin-pump days.

    Just watched the video at the link you put up Joe...i think I'm even more impressed now. What kind of power do you think he is making with that?
