I'm guessing the engines are based on the 6.2-liter block. Twin turbo, intercooler, 5000RPM, 1000hp and therefore probably huge boost pressure... I would dearly love to see this work but I don't quite see how it could. Or at least not with reliability and economy that one would normally expect from diesel engines.

Anyhow, it's nice to see people trying new things and fingers crossed.
Sounds a lot like Gale Banks twin turbo Duramax setup. I think they flatlined the dyno at 1200 foot pounds, dont know if they reached the 5K target rpm goal, 700+hp

I think the weights are pretty close to each other. Less than a blown big big block I think.
