    The Wartsila-Sulzer RTA96-C turbocharged two-stroke diesel engine is the most powerful and most efficient prime-mover in the world today. The Aioi Works of Japan 's Diesel United, Ltd built the first engines and is where some of these pictures were taken. It is available in 6 through 14 cylinder versions, all are inline engines. These engines were designed primarily for very large container ships. Ship owners like a single engine/single propeller design and the new generation of larger container ships needed a bigger engine to propel them. The cylinder bore is just under 38" and the stroke is just over 98". Each cylinder displaces 111,143 cubic inches (1820 liters) and produces 7780 horsepower. Total displacement comes out to 1,556,002 cubic inches (25,480 liters) for the fourteen cylinder version. Some facts on the 14 cylinder version:

    Total engine weight:
    2300 tons (The crankshaft alone weighs 300 tons.)

    Length:
    89 feet

    Height:
    44 feet

    Maximum power:
    108,920 hp at 102 rpm

    Maximum torque:
    5,608,312 lb/ft at 102rpm
    Fuel consumption at maximum power is 0.278 lbs per hp per hour (Brake Specific Fuel Consumption). Fuel consumption at maximum economy is 0.260 lbs/hp/hour. At maximum economy the engine exceeds 50% thermal efficiency. That is, more than 50% of the energy in the fuel in converted to motion.
    For comparison, most automotive and small aircraft engines have BSFC figures in the 0.40-0.60 lbs/hp/hr range and 25-30% thermal efficiency range.

    Even at its most efficient power setting, the big 14 consumes 1,660 gallons of heavy fuel oil per hour.




    this might be that same boat one that went around, only not installed in a ship yet

    You could have a 6 speed transmission hooked up to it- every single gear an overdrive.

    You'll just have to do a little cutting to make it fit.

    And there is a certain spot in the fender well you'll have to massage to make it clear the pulley.


    Think about this: IF honda had made that motor, It would have 2,799,333 HP. And it would have been NA. (Assuming the same efficiency of an ITR motor)

    That has to be the least efficient motor I've ever read the numbers on. 25,480 liters and 7,780hp? Thats 3.3 liters of displacement per 1 horse power. Certainly they could have done better than that. I know they can't match an ITR motor with that kind of size, but those numbers are still retarded.

    And the starter / flywheel is hilarious. The engineer photocopied a car motor and blew it up 90879%

    220.106436 ft/lb of torque per liter. That's nothing to laugh at.

    Use the search function, this has been covered eleventy billion times^2.

    On a more serious note, that is one big ass motor. The amount of torque that thing generates is insane. I wonder if you could swap that into one of those strip mining deals, you know the one that takes 17 people to drive.

    you'll never get through emissions with a 2 stroke diesel...

    do you plan on driving this on the streets? or will this be a strictly track toy??

    Oil? They use the souls of young Croatin children to lubric their machine of death.

    Shouldn't be a problem with the swap.....it's plug and play lmao

    Might need to modify a few things (not sure if your stock alternator will mount correctly)

    As long as you can keep the AC, there's an almost endless supply of displaced orphans in the Balkans.
