Maximum Possible Power?


#1

Just out of curiosity: How much hp can you get out of an Automation engine, no holds barred (Q+15 on everything, >0.0 reliability)?
I just gave it a shot and got 3500+change out of a 120x120mm V12 (Turbo, of course), but I’m pretty sure that I suck at turbos, so I figure some of you guys could probably do way better…

(Note: There has already been a thread about max power here, but it was so old I think it was written in Sanskrit, so I didn’t want to bump that)


#2

There used to be 5000+ HP engines iirc


#3

I had gotten 3502 the other day I imagine a smaller higher revving engine might be able to produce more but would require someone more skilled than me.


#4

…or me, for that matter. @Deponte I take it that was in Kee, possibly like a million builds ago? Still, 5000+ is crazy, I’d be curious how to get that kind of figure, if still posible at all…


#5

I know a person that once got an engine in Kee to 6000 hp, but that was one heavily outdated build back in 2015.


#6

Did you use the Kee Engine or UE4 to get 3500+ (Assuming HP & Not another Power Unit)? Just Tried it in Kee & Best I could find is 2784HP@7400RPM & 2473 ft-lb@5300 with a Redline@8700, any Higher & Engine goes pop, +15 Everything in 2018:


#7

There were numerous engines with 3300+ hp in Kee and some with 3500+. It’s definitely possible with proper turbo setup.

Edit: example here, a 2 minute build


#8

I used the UE4 version


#9

I tried both KEE and UE4 and got pretty similar results:
