These pics are jaw dropping! :eek2: You could drive a Supra through each cylinder bore! Just thought all you motorheads would find this interesting.

:!: First thing that came to mind was Tatra's 21l v12, then Caterpiller's 58l v12 (2 of 'em in the 797). Deisel train engines are 96l (8 liters a piston). But 1820 liters! Thats... just... ow. I mean, the crank case has ladders to get in and out of it.
:greatpos:
I think everybody should click that link, so I won't say what it's max power is, but I think it's pretty funny that makes that number at 102 rpm (even if it makes sense)

I agree.......that engine is AMAZING!! (as for cussing, I don't care...we're all adults here so it's not a big deal).

I just wouldn't post something where profanity was like every other word. :wink:

That is totally unbelievable! I would love to see that thing run. It would really suck to be around if that thing threw a rod LOL!

The Wartsila-Sulzer RTA96-C turbocharged two-stroke diesel engine is the most powerful and most efficient prime-mover in the world today. The Aioi Works of Japan's Diesel United, Ltd built the first engines and is where some of these pictures were taken.
And you thought a TO4 was big..

and a litte more information:
7. The last time I checked, the largest low speed marine diesel was the 12 cylinder Wartsila/Sulzer RTA96C. This monster puts out a whopping 89640 BHP (65880 kW) at 100 rpm. The bore, stroke, and mep respectively are 960 mm, 2500 mm, and 18.2 bar. The first ship to receive this engine was the large container ship NEDLLOYD SOUTHAMPTON.
from here: http://www.msc.navy.mil/n7/newsltr/v01_i06.htm

Is mep the boost pressure? Don't normal things run around .7-.8 bar? :shock:

18.2 bar is approximately 267 psi. That's more than 15 times the boost I'm running right now, and I'm having problems with intercooler hoses blowing off... I suspect that thing doesn't use rubber hoses though. :)
