    • The only way to make an E92 M3 fast - Small black V8 swapped BMW M3 drag car

      Kidding of course. There are some very impressive BMW E92 M3 S65 V8 builds out there and plenty of 10 second examples but this one is a bit of a different take. The purpose built drag car features a 312 cubic inch small block V8 with Bob Book carburetors.


      What does it run? Good question. BimmerBoost does not know the answer. Hopefully we get some follow up regarding who built this car. Better yet, why they built this car.

        its not even a M3 though... personally I don't like anything about this but the m badges and calling it a M3 is the icing on the cake

        Something about "Small Black V8" makes me laugh.

        +1, the gauges make it seem like this was an E92 335

        My friend sent me this, no photos of the motor or description. I said if its a TT S65 drag car its awesome. It turned out to be V8 swap with carbs, literally so boring...

        Well that's what I'm kind of wondering. How quick is this thing with that small block?

        A 500 cubic inch monster with a BDS blower on top is what I was expecting.

        I bet its a short stroke 5 digit revver. People run 8s with that setup.

        Not a bad point. That's what the engine builder goes for I think.
