The Isotta ID 38,s are 450 hp in pleasure,just like mine ,A guy in the UK that had raced with a CUV with those ID 38,s said he had them up to 850 hp back then in 1988,without internal engine mods ,he said bigger turbo,s pump settings, injectors(tips) and a few minor other things....
The ID 38 is around 720 kilo (1500 lbs) and turns 3150 rpm,s max, 9,7 litre V6 and the air flows reverse thru the engine ,the exhaust runs where normally the intake sits and the intake air comes in where normaly the exhaust is.
each turbo has its own intercooler (water to air)
Although the engines are old (1986) I still like to use it someday

Oh I forgot ,the engine uses 180 litre /hour at 850 hp according the info they gave me .

Back in the late 80's we built 55 footer with a pair of those Diesels on Arnesons and it went to France, Nice Motors very compact ..the story I got is they were originally tank engines.

Buzzi spent a month with us in 84 or 85 ( Codomos place)he had the grey Iveco Cat going to Key West and was dialing it in ,Davy Wilson Knew him very well and invited him to our shop ,talk about an unforgettable person this guy was going at 6000 rpm ! Way cool experience I should have took his offer and went to Italy.

He was working on the Sea Tek then when asked "What If" they banned the new diesel the reply was laughing I got an Idea for a 500 cubic inch 2 stroke!!!!!!
