Surf the wave

When the Decimal Is in the Wrong Place


Depending on the circles you run in, engine nomenclature runs to 2.5, 3.3, 4.0 or that other circle, 7.2, 6.8 and such.

Imagine the 25480.0 if you will.

The Wartsila-Sulzer RTA96-C turbocharged two-stroke diesel comes slimmed down as an inline-6 or maxxes out with fourteen cylinders.

With a cylinder bore of 38" and the production of 7800 horsepower per cylinder, this is one mean machine.

I wonder if a 25480.0 would fit on the back of my ride....
