When I was working in the oil and gas drilling fields in Wyoming they would use big huge quad turbo diesel engines similar to that to operate the pump used for hydrofracing the gas wells.

I was wondering if that was a tank engine of some sort.  Way too small for that car at any rate. :P

um, needs 2 centrifugal compressors ..no wait...4 compressors feeding 2 blowers but the centrifugal compressors are fed by turbos and then we put stage 3 laughing gas direct injected to each intake runner and a couple JATO units in case none of the above get it to move.

The picture looks like it was taken at a salvage yard. That might offer a clue! :lol:   I think they were spicing up another dull day at the junkyard.

They sat the engine on top of the cars hood. You can see the transmission going through the windshield.

If more is good, then too much is better.

Yes. Old hot rod adage: " If some is good, more is better, and too much is just right."

I wish I had a picture still.. some one tried to take 8 Caterpillar turbos and plum 1 per cylinder  and 1 carburetor per turbo... it was a hideous mess.. I don't think it ever ran LOL.

I think Hot Rod Magazine ran a story on that and got blasted for it.
