So you’ve finally gotten around to your hot rod project that’s been sitting in your garage for the better part of a decade. Like most enthusiasts, you’d like a nice big engine to accompany you down to the local Cars & Coffee event. But LS V8 swaps are a dime a dozen nowadays, so why not use this 14-liter V16 instead?
Created by marine performance engine company Sixteen Power, this massive engine is a combination of two 7.0-liter LS7 V8s which have been merged into a single block. The result, unsurprisingly, is obscene amounts of power . According to the firm’s website, the engine is offered in 900-, 1200-, and 1400-horsepower trims, as well as a 1600-horsepower supercharged and a 2000-horsepower quad-turbocharged version. More than enough to impress the local car show crowd.
Powerboat Nation posted a walkaround video of the 14-liter monster on its Facebook page, which you can watch below to get an idea of just how big the block is. Obviously it wasn’t designed to be used in a car, but rather to for performance boats, which need huge amounts of power to get moving. We’re sure it wouldn’t be too difficult to cram into an old Chevy, though.
