    For PC 3406A's, the closest you could get to today would be a swirl chamber 3406A with something like 25:1 compression (coming from a PC engine), common rail fuel system, and no emissions devices. Coming from DI engines you could go with a 3406E.

    The 60 was the best Diesel engine ever built.

    I’ve always wanted to have an old supercharged Merlin from a P-51 mounted on a stand just to fire up, listen to, and feel the burn every once in a while.

    If "Big Al" didn't snap cranks as often as they did that'd be a sweet engine with a few modern updates. post-17364-0-54162700-1429543171_thumb.jpg

    There are maybe three that I know of still running in the states. 2 in FL coes and one is on a mobile display flatbed that tours truck shows.

    I absolutely love the 6BT Cummins (12 valve) in my daily driver, so if I could have one just like it but scaled up to 15 liters, I would be quite happy.

    500 HP / 2050 lb-ft mated to a 13 speed, geared to sit in the sweet spot at 67MPH.

    This compound turbo C-18 has been turned down to 1000 hp for longevity purposes. The owner is the guy who built my engine which, BTW is my dream engine!

    The rare pre-emission 14L Series 60 is the halo version. Up to 575/1850 power settings.

    Pretty sure Leno has one that's been totally restored. There's a video of it.

    Worked with a fellow who was part of the truck drag racing scene out in Ontario/Quebec. According to him those pre-EGR 14L were the engine to have.
