Cummins 855 1500 hp

Cummins 855 1500 hp, broke the block under acceleration at approx 140 kmh. The piece of block is on the ground in the left side of the photo. Engine failed at 10:00 am and was changed out and running again for the second race at 3:30. Awesome crew!

How do you get 1500Hp from a 855? Is that a Big Camm 4/5 block? The CPL is off the map I should think? Retarded timing and unbelievable pump pressures I pressume. Great stuff. If only it was sustainable HP.
