I've heard of high-boost turbo systems, but that is just rediculous! I don't think the RS has enough horsepower to even turn that sucker! hehe!

And we though WRC blow-off valves were loud! hahaha.

So, what's the real-deal behind these gigantic turbos? Are they used in nuclear powerplants or something like that?

Like I said (well, sort of), it's a turbo for a diesel locomotive. 16 cylinders turn that sucker!

Hey, I saw a Civic CX hatchback with one of them on it at Englishtown a while back, they got it to fit in the engine compartment because they had it custom fabricated out of vaccuum-formed plastic! The car did make a nice "chingpshhhhhhhhhhh" sound when it shifted too, and the front-mount intercooler was huge!

LOL!

Anyway, I have seen one of those in person for real, but it was on an old Pennsylvania Railroad E8 Diesel-electric passenger locomotive. I find it absolutely astonishing that the only use for the engine inside a diesel locomotive is to turn the generator for the electric motors on the axels...

No. Those are industrial blowers for moving air in and out of buildings. They only have one turbine side, the other side is either an engine or an electric motor. They are made strictly to move air, mostly to push through air filtration systems.

I worked for a place that made smaller scale blowers like these (only 1-3' dia. turbines) and used electric motors to drive them. (ref. www.ibifans.com)

My mistake, they are about the same size as the turbos I saw. Well, maybe a bit bigger. I figured with the bigger more powerful engine they have in diesel locomotives these days, they'd be about that size now. Now we all really know what happens when one assumes...

Centifugal liquid pumps look very similar as well. Could also be for a big water treatment plant or something like that.
