That engine is an 8V 92 series Detroit Diesel. (The old two stroke engine)

You can go to NAPA and get Alpine Green spray paint which is the equivallant color to what Detroit painted those engines back in the day.

Are you sure its an 8V92? I thought it was an 8V71.

The older kit is supposed to include a gas turbine engine as well.

Tim's right, the engine is a detroit Diesel 8V 71 in the Astro. the 8V 92 was in the Gmc General/Chevy Bison as well as amt's Kenworth K100 Aerodyne cabovers.
