1844HP is a ton of ponies, in case that wasn’t already completely obvious. While diesel technology has evolved to the point where almost 2000hp has been achieved before, we think it’s safe to say that this Chevrolet Duramax was pushed a little too far past the limit . When we hear the turbo spool on this monster, we can tell that we’re about to see something special, but that in combination the nitro . What we end up with is a quite epic explosion with parts a flyin’. Sometimes the vehicle just cannot endure the pressure we are applying . The dyno run was going nicely, and when those guys wanted to extract the full potential of the vehicle (which they did before the blow up) it simply gave up and went up in smokes.
