    • 1220 Horsepower turbo S50B32 on E85 built by PPF Sweden swapped into BMW E21 for drag racing

      What the Swedes do with turbo BMW's is absolutely incredible. Some of your are familiar with PPF out of Sweden, a company that has done some ridiculous turbo BMW's. This is an S50B32 Euro motor out of the E36 M3 with a precision 8285R billet turbo at 30 psi running E85. Keep in mind, the 1220 horsepower is seen on an engine dyno, not at the wheels, but when you are talking about over 1000 horsepower it is ridiculously impressive no matter what. Check out the vid and pictures below and expect some record setting 1/4 mile times soon.

        This thing is insane.

        I just don't understand why it feels like the Swedes are so much further ahead of us on big HP BMW builds.

        They're probably snowed in for half of the year, so they stay in, tinker with these crazy builds, and then take them out when the weather permits. Haha.

        Heh, we try to be as diverse as possible. If there is a new aero part, have to mention it. If there is a blown motor, have to mention it. If there is a new big HP number, have to mention.

        I can tell you this much, we are the only forum that will give you it all and you can decide for yourself.

        If I could have it my way, we would do nothing but discuss motor builds and performance times but achievements like this are not quite so prevalent. That is also what makes this special.

        I'm enjoying it at as well Click here to enlarge
