I think 3 turbos might have been too many for that Cummins. Yikes! It reminds me of a Norton Commando road racer I saw after a standing start. The crankshaft and everything below it were gone. What was left of the engine was just hanging from the cylinder head/frame mount. Those of us that started next to him were peppered with chunks of hot aluminum. It took quite awhile to clean the track too. The whole experience was very memorable.

This comment from that video is one of my favorites ever. “So your saying It didn't really fail from any particular thing, it just kinda stopped being engineering and started being physics.”

It would be pretty hard to determine "any particular thing" as a cause. The fricken thing is TOAST! Monty Python would have a great time explaining how dead that engine is now. They say you don't know the limit until you go past it so I guess they now know the limit.

It’s only a flesh wound.
