My God! Those pictures looked like they were from "Honey I Shrunk The Factory Workers."

109,000HP makes that Bugatti Veyron sound like a real slacker . . .

Call me crazy but I would've never suspected that such a giant engine would have essentially the same design as a common internal combustion type--cylinders arranged in a row a crankshaft etc in similar proportions. Somehow I always pictured the giant container ship engines as exotic turbine-style thingies, not literally giant internal combustion engines.

I'd hate to have to pay for an oil change for that bad boy!

I was wondering if anyone has ever seen a TV show about that, like on the Science channel or something? I'd love to see video of it.

Oil change? How do you change the oil in an engine that burns used engine oil (or worse) for fuel?

I think i saw the same program i dont recall what the name of it was but it was very interesting. they inspect each cylinder by opening a door and walking in the engine of course while it is not turned on. but that was an awesome program.

"* LARGEST DUMP TRUCK
Matt Rogers travels to the Albian Sands in Alberta, Canada, to ride aboard the largest dump truck in the world: the Caterpillar 797. This 1.375 million-pound monster with a massive 3,400-horsepower diesel engine drives along the sands with wheels that stand 14 feet tall. The world's largest diesel truck is a powerhouse built to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to produce oil."

This is from the Discovery channel show "Really Big Things"
