This is a MTU 8V 396 diesel engine blowing up. This video was shown during a rebuild class I just took. Not really sure what happened. My guess would be that it spun a bearing, causing a piston to try and sieze, in turn throwing a rod. Pay attention at 24 seconds to the engine torquing hard to the left and the terrible sound it makes until it lets go...
S13 Top Speed And Engine Failure
testing top speed of 200SX S13 1.8 turbo
CA18DET ... blown engine at 240kmh (actual GPS verified speed - rear tires
were bigger than stock)... conrod broke in 5th gear at 6400rpm (at top
speed and peak power) and was launched trough engine block... on german
autobahn, ofcourse... ;) ;) ;)
btw... the car was bought for some spare parts, we knew the engine was not
that good, but checked all the fluids...after the engine blew it acctualy
didnt matter, I really dont like CA engines anyway... right now i have 3
S13's (1 CA i 2 SR) and 1 build S14 SR...

Ever thrown a rod? how about a block?
HUGE engine explosion at a tractor pull event. the block is literally
blown out of the engine bay and lands onto the ground next to the tractor.
as far as catastrophic faliure goes, this is as bad as it gets.
