Anyone like big engines? I think this is the biggest engine I’ve ever seen to go into a car. It's going into a car developed in Dubai, known as the Devel Sixteen. It's built by Steve Morris Engines. The SME-V16 features quad (yes, FOUR) 81mm turbochargers, a one-piece billet block, billet crankshaft, billet cam, and two-piece billet heads. Its displacement is 748 c.i. Did you read that? That’s 12.3-liters! How much horsepower you ask? To date, it’s put out a reported 4515 HP with 3518 lb-ft of torque. Umm, wow!

For you machinists out there, there’s an entire section of PRI dedicated to CNC machines, dynos, and the like. I was watching this Centroid A560 5-axis CNC machine in action, which features a 27hp/20,000 rpm spindle, 24-tool automatic tool changer, digitizing probe and software, and Mastercam CAD/CAM software. It’s also got a windows touch screen control and Centroid’s patented articulation head design.

The DYNOmite dynamometer is designed for big horsepower cars that tend to lose traction on other dynos. It features diamond-knurling, deep machined-in traction grooves, and a traction coated dragstrip surface.
