The largest Detroit Diesels built were the 16V-149 Series. That is a V16 at 149 cubic inches per cylinder. The next jump up under the old General Motors umbrella of that time were the Electro Motive Diesel engines. Those engines, also two stroke design, were the 645 and now 710 series. That is 645 cubic inches and 710 cubic inches per cylinder. EMD engines are commonly used in EMDiesel Locomotives. Formerly a part of General Motors who sold out to Ahlstom of Canada who sold out to a holding company. The largest EMDiesels are up to V20 configurations.

Give this engine a thought the next time you are considering a repower blow that smart alec Cummins ISL off! http://www.emdiesels.com/emdweb/emd_index.jsp

10 or 12 years ago I bought 2 -15 kW gen sets with 2-71 engines they were out of refer rail cars. I converted them from 3 phase to single phase we used them to power construction sites. They had the cutest little blowers
