Audio System
Sony Mobile ES CDX-C90
Sony XDP-4000X Digital Preamp
4 Kicker 6 1/2" RS6
4 Kicker 1" RS6 Tweeters
2 Kicker K69
4 Sony XS1090 P5
2 Sony XM-DS16000P5
5 Sony XM-2800
Sony Mobile ES 6 Disk CD changer
Sony XA300
IXOS power and ground wiring
IXOS GAMMA rca's
Tsunami distribution blocks
Optima Red Top
2,400 Watts RMS

OK so I may not know engines but I can pimp the hell out of your audio system.

I believe those are engines that NEVER stop. In fact, I think the oil is changed constantly while they are running. If it is what I think it is, they have a train car outside that the oil fills from and one next to it that the used oil dumps into.

It's the big jet turbine right next to it, although it doesnt have an intercooler so it isnt producing as much hp as it could. Next thing you know the boat Valdez has a HUGE wing on it and Alteza's... !!!! lol

108,920 hp at 102 rpm.

Yea. But if they slap on a R-Type sticker, fart can and some neon lights they could bump it up to 208,920 hp at 102 rpm.

My dad works on big @$$ engines like this. He fixs and repairs motors for crusie ship and such. I went to the shop one day and the block alone for this one engine was 3 stories tall, and about 40 feet long. i walked inside it....it was just crazy. And the turbos are huge, like massive huge. The opening on one that i have seen was at least 24 inches in dia.
