Yeah those may work...BUT then it would loose the "SLEEPER" effect on looks!

And to the prior post... 4 GALLONS PER MILE is probably more accurate.....

He, he, he.....a little fun for Thanksgiving! I believe the engine gets 4 GPF (gallons per foot) The tires on the Nova most likely would hook up well. Most likely would lose the rear seating area after tubbing. ;)

Looks like two 12V-71s in-line. I guess you may know that the Detroit Diesel engines are 2-cycle. That's why they all have a blower, because that's the only way they can run. They use a conventional crankcase oil lubrication system so they don't need oil in the fuel. The blower forces air into the cylinder and the fuel is injected normally. This is timed to limit the obvious overlap where some of the fresh charge is going to be blown out the exhaust valve. No other diesel sounds like a Detroit. Another major application was the 16V-141 which has been used in practically all Diesel-electric locomotives, running a constant 900 RPM to turn the generator to power the electric motors. That's 141 cubic inches of displacement per cylinder, 19 C.I. more than the KIA 2.0L engine.

One smart cookie....knows his engine history. Yes, I've heard these running (in a heavy crane set up years ago) and the sound is unmistakable!

Yes he is. and I was aware of these type motors as I had trucker friends in my past that had D.D.'s in their rigs and other heavy equipment.
My hope for this obviously made in FUN thread, stays that way and not "morphed" into technical or a "skepticism" diatribe. We have enough "technical" and "purist" threads on the forum, a bit of HUMOR is needed from time to time.:)
