Some question if its actually a scorpion engine, I myself can't say for sure but I know it's not a 6.0 Liter!

It didn't look like the normal 6.7, but it it's a pre production test engine that may be why. The only dollar signs I'm seeing from that mess is the scrap metal value.

I expected a bigger defence from you. Something along the lines of (1) It was under load (2) It was obviously being tested to ensure there would be no problems or (3) They run it full enrichment to see how long it would go before blowing.

See what bothered me about the video, outside of having a hard time identifying the engine was the fact the author did not mention anything outside of it being a 6.7 Scorpion. As you mentioned, test engines are going to look diffrent from the final product and given the fact that many of the acessories are not installed while being tested on a Dyno it's damn hard to tell.

I would like to know more details about the test and what caused the failure. I think I can hear what sounds to be the Turbo taking a shit at first. What do you think?

Eh... I was talking from the standpoint of R/R labor time. You been spending a lot of time picking up scrap metal PowerStroker? Cuz usually I have vultures that carry that kind of stuff away for me.

I thought you were one of those vultures - always dumpster diving for Mercedes fuel pumps and the like

Oh how I wish it was that easy. If you could go dumpster diving for Mercedes parts everyone would be driving one.

As it stands, I buy the whole cow and store the parts till needed.

I can see you are one of them guys that would rather stick your head up the cows ass than take the butchers word for it. Then again I used a Mercedes 560 to drag that worthless chunk of Ford the other day. I should have taken a video.

Whatever it is, I would say that the engine is being tested to destruction..... or is this not allowed?

I was leaning more twards it's the scorpion engine that PowerStroker rebuilt in spoon feeder school being tested for re-build quality.

Then again it's entirely possible they were maxing out the engine as you said.

Actually if you watch closely right when the thing starts to make noise you can see a little lever/valve being closed.

Its right in the left/center of the screen right behind the engine mounted on the wall. Just before it starts to make noise you can see the lever being moved downward.

I think they blew this sucker up on purpose. I am thinking they cut the oil pressure from the looks of it.

When the artifact moves down, you can hear what may be a turbocharger spooling down or possibly some mechanical "complaint". I can't see them cutting oil pressure because we already know what happens to most engines with no oil pressure (HEUI engines may vary). If they did cut oil pressure, I would expect the engine to run a bit longer than it did before the catastrophic chain of events began (DAMHIKT).

You did see this thing puking it's guts out the bottom, right?

They cut the pump pressure Pogo. The engine is running at damn near WOT so of course its going to blow. I wasn't aware that the 6.7 engine used a HEUI injection system?

Once a hole was blown in the side of the block of course oil poured out.

Tell us what YOU THINK they did to make this engine blow. Had the engine just been at an idle or a lower RPM I would have expected it to last a little longer. In this case it appears the engine is higher up in the RPM's.

I feel it's was either a loss of oil pressure or excessive load. I am leaning twards loss of oil pressure.
