Ah, but it is boosted!! It uses several HUGE turbochargers to keep the manifold pressure up. The one in the picture above is being put together in a container ship.

Ahh to have that in a truck....

-----------------------------
Him: Yea, dude! I gotta 502ci in that truck, she could pull ANYTHING

Me: Yea i suppose 502 is pretty powerful, i wonder how it compares to my 900.... cubic foot

Him: (silence)

Me: Its no big deal really, it just puts out over five and a half MILLION lb/ft of torque. *giggle like a little kid in a candy store*

Him: (jaw drop silence)

Me: *grin* Wanna ride?
-------------------------------

Only problem i found is that you'd have to have a solid driveshaft more'n 5 feet around to put that power to the ground.

And then hope you have a good stock of tires.

Could you even IMAGINE the turbo whine

Diesel = no spark plugs. Compression causes combustion when fuel is injected.
what about a glow plug

just simply warms up the cylinder before starting so the fuel ignites easier. they prolly use flamethrowers or something . hey, what do they use for a starter?

Probably use a smaller engine(*) like the old CAT'*. Or maybe a series of self-ignited explosions in one or more cylinders?


Once they get that thing going it aint ever gonna stop, so starting has GOT to be a hassle.
