    Yeah is a diesel turbo for a 6 cylinder marine engine with pistons the size of melons. Water cooled housing makes it look bigger, its still huge but dead. The boat captain didn't check the engine when there was no power and kept on sailing :asskicking:

    In the real world..

    Compressor on the right is your hybrid 2283 compressor wheel, ( looks quite pathetic really ) One on the left is his big brother on steroids!

    Single stage end suction compressor.

    Used to compress natural gas and the likes. We have them installed in the UK on our National Grid system shoving gas up and down pipes around the UK
