Probably for ships. Don't get too carried away with it yet. The Iowa class battleships put out 212,000shp, and that is a modest number in todays terms. Although I would like to rev that thing at a ricer.
Yeah I didn't see a turbo anywhere either. That thing doesn't even come close to whats on my ship. The ship engines have 12 cyl, 24 piston (vertically opposed) turbocharged railroad diesels. 3,600 Shaft HP each. I have no idea what kind of torque it puts out.
Having been around some of the 200 ton pay haulers at the Berkley Pit in Butte, Mt., I thought they were huge. That engine is absolutely incrredible. They must set it in place and build the ship around it.
