When you’re hoping to make as much power a two Bugatti Chirons, you’re going to break a couple of Cummins engines along the way.
Industrial Injection Diesel Performance only had one mission this weekend, and that was to friggin send it. According to multiple videos showing their dyno run from Edge Product’s dyno day in Ogden, Utah earlier yesterday (Sept. 20,2020) their shop truck 6.7L Cummins diesel triple turbo build catastrophically blew up on their second and final run.
Check out their viral dyno video run below including photos and a full video showing the Dyno day cut short below.
Researching about this truck, I came across this video below, which should give you an idea how much time, effort, and money went into this colossal build. Uploaded in April 2020, this build was already at 2,700 HP.
As you can see in the video, after their first dyno run around 1:26:00, they were able to hit 2,920 HP, an enormous amount of HP to the wheels, but not good enough.
They wanted 3,000.
After making a couple of adjustments and, according to second-hand accounts, “throwing as much NOS as they could.” They hoped everything would hold up for one more. What’s 80 more HP?
It looks like that build was already tuned to the ragged edge and 3,000 HP was not in the cards.
Ironically enough, while looking up different angles of the video on social media, this explosion is being re-posted everywhere. While 3,000 HP is noteworthy, I have to wonder if their company would’ve gotten the same amount of attention they’re getting now.
I certainly have never heard of Industrial Injection Performance until today.
Then again, no one builds a car just so it can blow up on the dyno.
Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt in the dyno explosion and both driver and passenger escaped with “minor scratches.”
I’m sure this is a minor setback for Industrial Injection, they’ll come out with an even stronger turbo diesel build soon enough, and they’ll be hitting 3,000 HP reliably like it’s a walk in the park.
