  • Not happy with 1,000hp? Try 109,000hp!!!

    Some facts on the 14 cylinder version:

    Total engine weight: 2300 tons (The crankshaft alone weighs 300 tons.)
    Length: 89 feet
    Height: 44 feet
    Maximum power: 108,920 hp at 102 rpm
    Maximum torque: 5,608,312 lb/ft at 102rpm

    Sounds kinda freaky, huh? Click the link, then you too will understand. :D

    If that had crank walk there would be a HUGE problem, including dead people.

        :lol:

        And we thought our timing belt changes were rough...

        Best reply yet, on another forum:

        And 5,608,312 lb/ft? How do you measure that? Seems like it'd just pick up the building the dyno is in and throw it across town.

        On another note, I want to see the turbochargers the article mentions...

            I don't even think the connecting rod studs would fit in a Miata... :lol:
            I think a Miata would fit in one cylinder of that beast though!

              That's utterly insane.

                I think a head bolt is bigger then a Miata.

                  I wonder how all that tq would feel....

                  Any idea as to what the motor is powering?

                        wtf? These came out of left field....i remember seeing these pics like 5 yrs ago :lol:


                        I think the design of a 2-piece rod is rather cool/strange...but the ladders going down into the crankshaft area are killin' me :D
