Will this turbo work on an M10?

Sure, it should be just about the right size to keep the M10 from flying away the next time a tornado hits.

I have to disagree- I think that thing would CAUSE the next tornado....

no, of course it won't. What diesel earth- mover's it from, anyway?

I don't see why not . . . ;p

Just give me a long enough staging time before a drag race and I'll have that turbo making oodles of power from an m10... Might require welding the head to the block though . . .

I have heard of turbo lag time that could be measured with a Sun Dial but that would be more like a calendar. With the stock 2002 fuel tank I'm guessing you will run out of fuel waiting for it to spool up!

It's on a 1.5 Megawatt generator's V16 Caterpillar diesel. The engine and generator are about the size of an 02, not to mention the muffler, which dwarfs my refrigerator.

My dad took me to see those running at his hospital when I was about 8 years old, they have 3 and are contemplating getting a fourth. They're so very cool and loud and big, and one of those things I want just to have, like a Chrysler Hemi air-raid siren :)

Hahaha thanks for making my day. It will definitively lower your ride height too in the front so it's dual purpose.

We've done a couple of of locomotives for bombardier and they are HUGE. A 44oz big gulp will fit in the compressor outlet.

I work where those are built in Lafayette Indiana. If that is a V16 it has 69l of displacement. We make them up to 339l of displacement. For the big boys you need a ladder to change the spark plugs (on a gas version).
