Bob made this comment in his post over on the SP36 engine change,3208 to 8.3 cummins thread, so I looked in my computer files and found an MPEG video of the "SILVER BULLET" that I believe I got from Mike Hohnstein a few years ago and I added it onto my www.youtube.com account.

The SILVER BULLET is owned by Rich & Jordan Lustik, Agco-Allis 6195 / Caterpillar 3208 Alcohol Super Stock, by converting the CAT to run on alcohol and replacing the injectors with spark plugs (to ignite the alcohol).normally the CAT 3208 produces 250 horsepower engine and it produces up to the limits of 3000HP, making it the worlds most powerful CAT 3208. http://www.cen-pe-co.com/Silver%20Bullet.htm

Bob found a site that claims it will produce 5,000HP ,but it definitely will make LOTS OF POWER!!! Check out this pull below........
