The only 100K HP engine I know about is this Warzila-Sulzer. I like the ladder rungs inside the crank case!

This is the crankshaft for a Wärtsilä-Sulzer RTA96-C engine, the largest reciprocating engine in the world, used in large container ships. It's a 1810-liter engine that generates 108,920 horsepower at 102 RPM, and it idles at 22 RPM... almost 3 seconds per rotation. This crankshaft weighs 300 tons (660,000 pounds) and each piston weighs 12,000 pounds and has a stroke length is 8.2 feet.
As of 2006 there were more than 300 of these engines in active service.

Gerald Pinkett: Jim Kajpust how much does it weigh?
Ariën Versluijs: Gerald Pinkett the 14 cylinder version is over 2300 tons (metrical), I doubt the 12 cylinder is below 2000 tons.
Robert Allin: Sulzer RTA 96, 2 strokes, bore 96 cm.
110 000 horse power in L 18 cylinders , the most powerfull diesel Engine in the world. Mostly on container vessels .
Toro Andersen: Robert Allin Well, 14 Cylinders at least, and they only built 8 of them, the only customer was Maersk as far as i know. They were 107390 to 114800 bhp.
