    That thing absolutely dwarfs two of the engines Ive worked on at Cat. Biggest we got it 9600 hp or so, and it requires a lot of cranes, hoists, hydraulic torquing fixtures and such, I cant imagine what it takes to work on one of those.

    Imagine three things:
    1. The intake for that thing must be HUGE!!!
    2. Does it have a Turbo...it must be HUGE!!!
    3. How much would it suck if that thing ran away? How far would you have to run before it grenaded itself. With redline at 101.5 RPMs...it probably doesn't take long.

    So, they got that hooked to a 700r4?

    Okay... this isn't quite as powerful... but it should get honourable mention /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I want a Diesel Chainsaw...

    Actually, I'm devising a way to build a Diesel motorcycle...imagine riding a bike with a nice black cloud pouring out behind you.
