5000 Watt Generator under the hood!

No affiliation but thought it was interesting. I didn't think anything else could be crammed under the hood of a E-series van.

Very interesting indeed. Bet that thing has spent a lot of time idling.

I've got a 5000kW engine mounted generator on my v10 that I just purchased, it's the Auragen g5000, I've got the electronic control unit that goes along with it too. PM if anyone is interested in possibly purchasing. It's just more power than I need for my camper van.
