When you take all the turbochargers, all the fuel, and all the nitrous and use them to make nearly 3,000 wheel horsepower in a full-race Cummins diesel engine, sometimes things go wrong. We have never seen them go as wrong as spectacularly as they did for the guys who own and operate the Industrial Injection Master Shredder truck in this video. An explosion and flaming fury the likes of which you hardly ever see out of a top fuel car let alone a diesel engine is an incredibly violent demonstration of the forces at work inside an engine that’s truly maximum effort all the way.
Diesel trucks have been making four digit power for many years now but pushing the boundaries of 3,000 is truly incredible territory when using something like the basic 6.7L Cummins platform as your foundation like the truck in this video. No, it is not a stock block as the whole engine is all race stuff. This truck is a regular competitor at events like the Ultimate Call Out Challenge and other diesel competitions, like the one it’s attending in this video.
Amazingly no one was hurt and the driver as well as the passenger were able to scamper out under their own power. The most amazing thing to us is that this thing split the block with enough force to take a top half of the engine along with the turbos, all the plumbing, fuel pumps, etc and throw it to an amazing height. It threw it far enough that you’ll see it launch and then you’ll see it land as the truck reacts as if a VW Beetle were just dropped on it. Basically it was.
We have not seen any engine autopsy stuff yet but we can’t imagine there’s much left that can be saved. This is truly jaw dropping. Oh, we should mention that the truck nearly made it to 3,000hp as the dyno recorded well over 2,900 before the explosion.
