Hmmm, think I'll pass on shoehorning that into my Italian Tractor (156 JTD)

Now that is what i call an engine. Did you see what revs the maximum torque comes in at? LOL

Just imagine the engine hoist required to lift the block into place in the ship! Mind you luckily it doesnt require a gear box as well...that would double the size.

I know these things drink fuel, but surely my calculations can't be right - at maximum power and using their figures, I get almost 250 litres/minute fuel consumption...

(108920 x 0.278 = 30104 lb/hour)
(30104 x 0.454 = 13667 kg/hour)
(13667 / 0.922 = 14824 lit/hour)
(14824 / 60 = 247 lit/min)

Considering a Type 22 / 23 using just their cruise engines typically only uses 20-30 litres/minute per engine (they have 2 plus 2 boost engines) then you can see just how thirsty this thing is... Also, the fuel tank on my Yaris would keep it going for all of 12 seconds...
