    Turbocharged S65 in the works from Savspeed South Africa

    I have heard quite a lot about this car and thought it would interest our readers. It seems they went for the single turbo route due to space restrictions on the steering side of the car and in order to retain the air conditioning unit. Their website is copyrighted so you guys will have to divert to the site.
    I will keep you guys posted if this car participates in timed events.
    http://www.savspeed.co.za/secret.html They are claiming to be the worlds first but not sure about this.

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I'm sure they'll be capable of handling that. IIRC they had a turbo S54 before we did, they just ran a complete stand alone unit.

    I'd love to see some turbo V8 M3 content...is the swede on any forums or have a website?

    Just like that other e46 built motor YSI I showed you. Nobody knew it existed lol. Some rich guys just do it for themselves. No need to post on forums what other ppl might only dream about.

    In South Africa the tuner is normally the ECU tuner too. The taboo that exists in the US in regard to software or piggy back tuning does't exist here. Most tuners can write their own files by now let alone program a stand alone or piggy back.

    I just like forums because I can interact and share with like minded enthusiasts. If I build a YSI car you better believe I'm going to post about it for all the internets to drool over Click here to enlarge
