You can always count on SEMA to turn out some head-turning builds, and that’s a mild way to describe what we have here. Behold, a 1970 Dodge D-Series pickup truck with not one, but two inline-six, turbo-diesel Cummins engines. This gives “24-valve” an entirely different meaning.
When we caught a glimpse of this dual-Cummins powerhouse sitting under the hood, we immediately wondered what the drivetrain setup was, and this video gave us the answer. The builders used a custom transfer case of sorts that ties the two engines together, feeding the power through a single output shaft to a plain ol’ factory transmission. The builder makes it sound simple in the video, though we’re sure it’s anything but.
It’s worth noting that these aren’t stock Cummins engines either, as they’ve been fitted with compound turbocharger setups, which means a total of 4 turbochargers are present.
