iN THE WORDS OF led zepplin "ooh ya, oooooh ya!" I cant believe It makes so much power! Why don't The big three take some lessons from audi. Whats cool about it is that it makes 500HP which means That the rpm redline must be Higher than most other diesels. (this is according to HP=work done/time interval)

And the new 2 litre VW/Audi 4 cylinder diesel is available in a version that is rated at 170HP (equivalent to 510HP 6 litre).  All of the VW/Audi diesels over about the same horsepower per cylinder in 3, 4, 5, V6, V8, V10 and V12 models.  The all have four valves per cylinder and double overhead camshafts.

The new 4½ litre dohc GM Diesel V8 is not too far behind.

In Europe, Ford has a V8 diesel in the 4-4½ litre range that is competitive, as does Mercedes and BMW.

Heard it's right about 5,000 RPM for this engine, which for a diesel, is really spinning!  Smile

Not really. Mercedes was revving that high in the 1970's.
