Stupid question, is that a diesel? I don't see spark plugs, so I'm guessing.

Cool........... but a little bogus. It looks like he's only pushing air thru it.

Yes I wondered about the fuel supply myself, is it air, diesel? I also wonder about the lubrication system? But it is a work of machining art. I wish I had a talent like that.

It's "run" by pushing air through it. Not a functioning ICE. Still impressive.
