100 psi cummins diesel goes boom
Not a typo, 100 psi.
That’s what happened to this 5.9 Cummins that had been outfitted with a pair of turbos in anticipation of hitting 2,000 horsepower, but the billet steel camshaft and rockers had other ideas.
“We think the cam didn’t have enough overlap,” owner Chase Lunsford tell EngineLabs. “It originally was built as a single charger motor.”
“It made 1,200 horsepower last year with the single turbo,” says Lunsford, noting the engine will be used in a Pro Street drag truck with expectations to run in the 8s.
