Those were used on the old deisel ships before they went to a turbine system, and the big earth movers, and I think they still use them on the earth movers.

I dont know if thats still the case . . . but mighty impressive.

Stats - 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.

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

Struggle to fit in your z though!

It's oil consumption would be measured in barrels, not quarts!
