Morbid Curiosity: Watch a Diesel V8 TOTALLY Explode on a Dyno

Warning: some material may not be appropriate for those with sensitive dispositions, children, or diesel mechanics. If you may not be able to handle the violent disembowelment of a massively overworked diesel engine on a dynomometer, please do NOT click through to watch a video. You may use your MAN or Caterpillar hat to shield your eyes if you desire.

Er, it was a Scania engine – now it’s a shell, devoid of the spark of life (or would it be “compression of life,” being a diesel with no sparkplugs?). Thanks to Adam for the tip!
