24V71 Detroit Diesel Supercharged 24 Cylinder Engine It’s as far out there as we’ve ever seen

This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359 Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4″ X 14″ rectangle rails, not sure how long it will end up being.

There’s no reason to take a 24V71 and build an intake manifold that weighs 1,000 pounds and mounts eight 6-71 superchargers on top of four others other than to say: There, take that. Yes, this is a V24 Detroit Diesel two-stroke (normally used to power ships), which is two V12 Detroits joined together nose to nose with splined cranks. It adds up to 1,704 ci. It’s ridiculous, on a grand scale. And that’s why it’s cool.
