This is the Turbo side of the motor...

Turbo weighs approx. 600 Lbs.

Exhaust temps in the 550 - 700 degree F range.
Cylinder pressures of about 1100 PSI
Motor holds 65 GALLONS !! of oil.
Air started by 300 LBS of compressed air direct injected into each cylinder.
Injectors open at 3000 PSI
Operating temp of 165 - 180 Degrees. 12 Ft square radiators and 1000 gallons of antifreeze keep it cool. Fans have 11 foot diameter blades !

Takes 5 days to perform a tune up on this bad Girl

o i can tell you about the motor my mechanic is working on right now for me, trying to figure out if an aurora 4.0l v8 can be set up with a rwd transmission for my car. bored .030 over, new cams and pistons, all motor over 350 hp, then s/c it, now that would be my dream setup, just happen to have an aurora motor out of a 95 sitting in my garage lol. if he can find a way to work this, i would be in his debt forever, i love that motor, soooo fast in the aurora we have now

I rented a burgundy '99 one for 2 weeks and I have to tell ya that was one of the sweetest rides I have been in. very quick for the type of car. I cant see why you couldnt do it. They use them in race cars in a rwd config. Only problem may be the width of the motor. Those valve covers are wide lol....

Big Thumpin diesels!

If you guys ever get a chance go take a look at some of the engines that are powering the Locomotives on todays main Railroads !

Big ass G.E.'s

Big EMD's, (EMD is a subsidiary of G.M.)

I haven' been around them in a while, but My pop used to work for the railroad when I was just a little squirt. When I was growing up instead og going fishing, we'd hang around rail yards, and go watch trains roll through. He taught me alot about locomotives, and what not. We always used to wait onthe New issue of trains to come in! MAn Som f the stuff in there was awesome. Those are some bigg azz Deisels in those Loco's!

No **** I'm talkin 5,000hp diesel's! HUGE!:evilg: :thumbup:
