Just Say N2O,
You'd need a 725" pitch prop, assuming no gearing.

On either TLC or Discovery not to long ago, there was a show about HYUNDAI, it's founder and this engine. It is used most commonly I believe in large ocean crossing ships. Great show if you get the chance to see it.

Baja Daze,
Riding lawnmowers? How big is your back yard?
I think that may be too big for even a ship.

According to the speed calculator on BAM I could hit 318 MPH in my rig with one of them bad boys, twins would only gain 17 MPH to 335MPH.
