Ex 2920hp truck

oh. it will be ok, it will just buff out.
would a claim under the CGA be out of the question ? I would have though that the engine should have been able to cope with being tweaked and modified within an inch of its life, then having the s**t reved out of it for an extended period of time !

Watch the third video in the link:
"2,920 HP Ram Truck Diesel Explodes on Dyno"
It looks like they run that truck for ages before it blows, it did 1 full power run, then on the second it blows.
I wonder how they were cooling it?
There doesn't look to be a dyno fan at the front blowing air into the radiator, in fact to me it looks like it doesn't even have a radiator?

No, but I thought of building my own dyno for dyno for dynoing small engines and motorbikes.

Watched another video, looks like its a sled pull truck- so probably no radiator.

Hey Phillip,
How you going?
Nothing like a Cummins putting out a little horsepower.

Hey Brandon, I'm all good.
That guy certainly has that motor wound up, 2920 hp. farrrkme that's nuts.

If only this would happen to ALL USA V8 trucks.

Its a 6.7l Cummins straight 6 diesel.
