Now THIS would look good in my bus!! But, if I could afford the motor, I'd have to extend the front of the bus and hang it out there!  Grin Grin Grin
24V71 Detroit


Well, maybe it would be ok in the back, but I'd have to be able to roll up the sides.  Cheesy Cheesy

So he is getting 3425 hp from 24 cylinders, that's 143 per cylinder near enough, 2 hp per cubic inch, that's 1142 hp for an 8V71.  He has 8 blowers on what looks like a common airbox.  He's belt driving the blowers at what looks like less than crank speed through a jack shaft off the crank nose, and the rear blowers look like they are also belt drive off the back of the engine.  Anyone believe the HP number?

Why not? With enough $ anything is possible! And he is a millionaire playing with his toys! (I read somewhere that they said they took it out of an offshore racing boat and are now going to put it in a drag racing truck!)
Besides that that is why they were running it on a dyno!
