Boss Cat: This Monster Caterpillar 3508 V8 Makes 1030hp and 3070 Ft/Lbs Of Torque on The Dyno!
This engine is not found in anything that goes over the road but it is found in stuff like massiveoff-highway dump trucks, tugs, dredges, cranes, drilling rigs, power shovels, and various mining equipment as well.
The engine in this video was being run after service by a shop to make sure it was still healthy and capable of doing the job it was built for. As the numbers bear out, this engine is as good as new and can be reinstalled into the vehicle it was powering. Imagine that job. Yikes!
One of the coolest numbers to share on these engines is the fact that the piston and rod assembly is two feet long from the top of the piston to the bottom of the rod. Crazy!
