The hydrokinetic engine produces a large amount of energy (524.288 KW) from downward flowing water. In order to achieve the maximum power output, the water source block needs to be 64 blocks above the hydrokinetic engine. Any lower, and power produced is lowered accordingly. These engines also consume a decent amount of Lubricant and as such it is recommended to have a good supply before investing in these engines. These engines can also be chained together (up to 4) to add their torque together. Right clicking on the Hydrokinetic Engine with a bedrock shaft will upgrade its core shaft, allowing for 16 engines to be chained, allowing for a theoretical maximum of 262.144 kNm of Torque!
