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...

This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.

8V53T Detroit Diesel first start
Engine is for sale,
Serious inquires only please, listed at this link, you need to be
registered to see classifieds (it's free, and a great forum anyhow)
First start in several years, it's a new engine to me and had been sitting
a long time before I got it.
It is an 8V53T even though it appears to be only an 8V53.... I removed the
turbo for now but it'll go back on soon.
You can look forward to a another video as a true 8V53T!
