Some motor industry businesses now provide engines with a displacement of merely one liter. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the 10.000 cubic inch Enterprise DSG-36.
It has nothing to do with the USS Enterprise from Star Trek or the DSG transmission. The Enterprise Engine and Foundry, which started producing these monstrosities in San Francisco in 1917, built it as an industrial machine.
The engine’s cylinder is exactly one foot wide thanks to its 12-inch bore and 15-inch stroke. That is around 270 liters for each cylinder. The original configuration of the engine only produced 600 horsepower, but it had a turbocharged version that produced more than 1,000 horsepower. Despite the fact that it hadn’t been started in thirty years, it began right up. The fuel lines weren’t drained of air, so it nearly sounds like it’s not firing on all six cylinders in the video.
Despite the fact that the Enterprise firm was better known for its marine engines, this specific unit is a factory stationary unit with a generator and is probably the only one that is still operational. This engine has a significantly larger flywheel and crankshaft than marine engines, but it cannot run reverse.
