This is Mike Harrah's baby. Harrah is a self proclaimed entrepreneur, developer, visionary and philanthropist. He also is a gearhead. 3424 horsepower, and it is gonna go into a Peterbilt 359 ahead of an Allison automatic transmission (no doubt extensively customized as well). This I gotta see.
The blowers are custom, and it's also on "the bottle." I expect plumbing in turbos would be a real nightmare, and I have to wonder if the heads could take it. While most of you have heard my opinions on production Detroit Diesel engines in the past, there is no denying that this exercise is a work of art. It just is, and if you don't understand, there is no hope for you!
