This is some pretty impressive work, seriously impressive. Our friend Oleg sent us details on a project they are wrapping up involving an S62 5.0 liter V8 swap into an 850. The fabrication looks fantastic and rivals the best we have seen from US tuners.

This a built motor with lower compression and a single turbo which is undergoing final tuning but preliminary power goals are 750-800 horsepower. Specs are as follows:
