My '01 GTS has been at DLM for a while and I requested that they send me a pic of the engine as it now is in the car...let me know what you think and any changes I might want to make before he puts the hood back on.

I am suprised you went with the diesel conversion; but to each their own.

Packet...

Actually, the diesel part was okay...I just need to make sure that the tiny guys come with the system. I think Serious used to play with tiny Corvettes...maybe he knows something about the TUAW(Tiny United Auto Workers)...

I guess the little guys correlate to the hamsters BMW and MB places under their hoods.

Clark, it looks like it has been well worth the wait thusfar. :thumb:

You'll need to beef up the suspension and get a bigger gas (diesel) tank for starters and also stretch the body so the engine will fit under a custom hood. You'll also need a different tach that can go up to 105 RPMs. Oh, and a bigger, stronger tranny will be a must, too. /images/graemlins/gr_driving3.gif

The Wartsila NSD (Sulzer) RTA96-C two-stroke diesel engine is the most
powerful and most efficient piston prime-mover in the world today. Bore
-
just under 3'2" (965mm). Stroke - just over 8'2" (2489mm).

Available in 6 through 12 cylinder versions (all inline). Engine
weight
exceeds 2000 tons in the 12 cylinder version (the crankshaft alone
exceeds
300 tons).

Point of maximum continuous power is 89,640 HP (66,844kW) at 100RPM
with
the 12 cylinder version. Point of maximum fuel economy is 53,244 HP
(37,704kW) at 90 RPM. The 12-cylinder engine exceeded 100,000
horsepower
during overspeed testing (all of 101.5 RPM!) while under test at
Japan's
Diesel Union works (who built the first engines and from who these
pictures
are taken).

Fuel consumption at maximum power is 0.278 lbs/HP/hour (BSFC). Fuel
consumption at maximum economy is 0.260 lbs/HP/hour.

At maximum economy the Sulzer engine exceeds 50% thermal efficiency
i.e.
more than 50% of the fuel going into the engine is converted to power).
For
comparison, consider that automotive and small aircraft spark-ignition
engines have British Standard Fuel Consumption figures in the
0.40-0.60
lbs/HP/hour range and 25-30% thermal efficiency.

The Caterpillar 3516s consume roughly 0.42lbs/HP/hour of diesel
(unknown
thermal efficiency).

Even at its most efficient power setting, the Sulzer 12 cylinder
consumes
nearly 1,660 gallons of heavy fuel oil an hour.

There's no replacement for displacement.

I hear GM is thinking of throwing in all the chips and putting this thing into the C6 to finally beat the Viper. Not to worry though, It's gonna handle like ASS!
