Damn. At my dad's work, they have a tugboat engine for a emergency generator and that think is the size of a 15-person van, but DAMN! I bet you anything that's for a tanker (probably said, too lazy to read it). I like pictures.

I guess they only use them in oil liners because they're the only ship that has enough fuel for them!

I'd like to put that in my S10. If the engine that I've got already can smoke the tires like it does, just imagine the smokey stop-light burnouts with that bad boy!

100000 horsepower. Damn. The best thing about it is it's efficiency, though - 50% is real good.

The thing is, I bet it has an INCREDIBLY low RPM, but with pistons that size, it gets insane amounts of HP and torque, allowing the boat to get going.

Wouldn't hurt much I bet. The blades would be so huge that you could park a bus between them I bet, so it'd be pretty hard to get hit by them...

I personally love the 2003 SRT-10 myself, but that is one nice Viper. I like the RT/10 Generation II's as well.

I don't like the SRT-10...Personally, the convertible's lines just don't fit with me...

Now the Competition Coupe is a different story...

I also have a 1:18 Maisto model car of the 1998 GT2...Paint it Metallic Midnight Blue with Flat Black Le Mans stripes, and ohhh...Don't get me started...

Yeah, that CC is beautiful. My old roomate saw a 1998 GT2 parked in a town on the Oregon Coast.

I think he's talking about the space-like background...
