This is what happens when you give a Cummins diesel 146 lbs. of boost! :shock:

It looks more like running an engine with no coolant or lube oil. I sure didn't see any fluids, but maybe its just me.

Automotive Machining, cylinder head rebuilding, engine building. Old school shop, semi-retired moonlighter. Can't seem to quit #-o

Another spectacular failure. Something eventually has to give and the blocks separate above the crankshaft, usually at the water jacket and lift/blow the rest of the engine off the pistons, upwards and sometimes out of the chassis.
