I second that...i went down in to the TARP system (a system of 32FT diameter pipes that store excess stormwater so the combined sewer systems of Chicago don't overflow into the rivers) at the MWRD station along I-55 by LaGrange Road...that's right, 32 foot diameter pipes!!...the valves for the pumps are the size of houses...insane.

Blah Blah Blah They had a special about those on Discovery Channel a while back. They are made for Japanese container ships. Engineers have to walk inside the engine so work can be done on it.

lol... j/k!

I've seen stuff like that before, definitely from a ship. Although, I think they should throw on a 100 shot, because them suckers have to have some lag...

ill_ag they look like snails. perhaps they go on the world's larget escargot platter.

that engine in the article is amazing. I like this the best "Ship owners like a single engine/single propeller design....", yeah, I'll take your word for it because out of all the people I know, none of them owns a SHIP! Boats, yes-- ships are just waaaaay outta my league! lol

oldschoolninja i got one of those on my ricers. it makes it gain 1000000 hp

The large oil container ships use those motors. They use compressed air to crank the motor over to start them up.

What in the world do these go on?

My guess is a super container ship...but I don't know if those engines are even big enough to put something like this on.

Here is an article about the worlds most powerful diesel engine. 108,000hp at 102rpms. Unfortunately no shots of the turbo(s). But look at that intake manifold!
