Yeah, Randy asked me if we wanted to put it into my boat. I said "SURE!!! and you're buying me a new drive after mine blows up just trying to get on plane, right?" LOL!!!

Pegged Tom's Dyno at 1/3 throttle from what I understand!

26Scarab-Being here is farmland, I'll attend a couple of tractor pulls each year. Often the unlimited class will have tractors (using a stock block) with 6 cylinders and 3 or 4 turbos! The whistle is phenominal! And these bad boys belch some smoke! The blackest smoke that you have ever seen-absolutly no light penetrates it!

Yea lots of smoke. I like the sound when they get under the turbo. ( boost pressure is higher than the exhaust pressure)

Boy when those guys blow a bottom end they do it right --- everything hits the ground.

Yea, they actually wrap 3/8" cable around the engines in hopes of keeping the large chunks with in reach! How'd you like to blow a clutch in one of those? Kiss your feet good bye!

I was fortunate to see that motor on Earhart's dyno late last summer. Quite the treat! Gotta love those turbos.
