The largest engine certified by the U.S. FAA is probably the Canadian
Orenda V-8, with 600 c.i. and 600 hp.  They are marketing it as a
replacement for small turbines in corporate twins and ag-planes.

The Falconer V-12 has the same displacement and power as the Orenda, but
it is not certified and is only flying in some homebuilt scaled P-51
Mustang replicas.
