Surprised it does not have a big deck hatch that would fit bales through...... Bet there is another storage area under the "cabin floor".

I haven't seen everything you can do to an engine, but how do you do this:
SUPERCHARGED and TURBOCHARGED ENGINES ?

Banks Power Super Turbo;

Over the last few years, the diesel quest for low-end torque seems to have been replaced by the bragging rights of quadruple-digit horsepower. While big power numbers are fine for selling parts and winning dyno days—torque is still what gets the job done. Almost as if to prove that point, Banks Power is now offering a series of all-new Duramax crate engines.

These motors are big on horsepower, but the supercharged and turbocharged version seen here is also huge on low-end grunt. How much torque? It's rumored that this marine engine puts out 900 lb-ft from idle to 3,800 rpm!

Known internally at Banks as the Super-Turbo, this blown and twin-turbo'd 6.6L Duramax engine was built for a military-spec offshore boat. Though this LBZ-based engine was intended for use in the ocean, there's no reason one of these babies couldn't end up in the engine compartment of your next project. The rear-mounted turbos and water-cooled exhaust manifolds might need to be reworked for firewall clearance, but we want to know: Who's gonna be the first to put this in a hot rod?

http://www.bankspower.com/magazines/...x-Crate-Engine

A normal diesel makes almost 2:1 tq to hp. The Banks engineers got the Duramax down to almost 1:1 to raise rpms for the marine environment. Banks offers this engine in cruiser trim with [email protected] In performance trim it will make 5800rpms.

I don't know what price Banks has set but $60,000 wouldn't surprise me. Probably more because of all the proprietary parts they had to fabricate for it. Almost nothing in this engine was left stock.
