Today, some companies in the auto sector sell engines with barely one liter of displacement. We have soᴍᴇᴛʜing like this, the 10.000 cubic inch Enterprise DSG-36, at the other end of the spectrum.
It has nothing to do with the DSG transmission or the Star Trek USS Enterprise. It was built as an industrial machine by the Enterprise Engine and Foundry, which began creating these monstrosities ᴄʟᴏsᴇ to San Francisco in 1917.
The cylinder of the engine has a bore of 12 inches and a stroke of 15 inches, making it exactly one foot wide. That translates to about 270 liters per cylinder. The engine had a turbocharged version that produced more than 1,000 horsepower, but the basic setup only generated 600 horsepower. It started straight up even though it hadn’t been started in thirty years. It almost sounds like it’s not firing on all six cylinders in the video because the fuel lines weren’t bled of air.
This particular unit is a factory stationary unit with a generator and is likely the only one that is still operating, despite the fact that the Enterprise company was more known for its marine engines. This engine, unlike marine engines, lacks the ability to operate backwards and has a much larger flywheel and crankshaft.
