    Using a 2speed powerglide transmission. Close to 950 crank horsepower and 153 is pretty fast trough an automatic transmission if u figure in the torque converter slippage.

    yeah true.. friends e30 with m20 did around 165 but that with the same zf gearbox as im using.

    Great results but running a 2 speed powerglide probably makes this an engine record not a BMW record, just sayin...

    I dont understand what you are getting at here. This car has stock body with stock floors and firewall and bmw independent rear suspension only thing not bmw is the transmission (the weight of my car is 3060lbs. At this time there is only one other car in the USA that is faster then mine that uses bmw BMW motor but it is a full tube chassis car (floor and firewall removed and has been built with tubes and only bmw shetmetal is used) it uses th400 auto transmission and a ford 9 inch rear it weighs 2200 lbs the best run he had so far is 8.2 And There is no other BMW car in the world that has broken the 8 second barrier with bmw independent suspension other then this one right here...

    Without a doubt, this is an impressive result... you're car is badass, all I am pointing out is that it does not have a BMW transmission which doesn't make it a Bmw 100%... that is all, no more no less... take it how u want to.

    I never claimed that it had bmw transmission in it nor that it is 100% bmw. I claimed that it is bmw stock body and bmw stock independent suspension.It is Far from 100%bmw, No argument there but there was never such a claim in the first place. Hell if u just put a turbo on a bmw wich is not originally turbocharged makes it not a 100% BMW.

    May I have the turbo specs, fuel used, and the estimated power or a dyno graph to go with this?

    Karel, thanks for that however i have known that car for years even considered doing same suspension set-up in mine, however that suspension is a home-made ladder bar set-up. Stock bmw control arms and the cross member are gone and ladder bars are mounted directly to the body where it has been reinforced with tubing,the rear floor has been completly removed and reconstructed with tubes and sheet metal.one piece front end and tubed front end.Front stock suspension/strut towers/frame hase been removed and replaced with custom control arms and shocks .it is basically a tube chassis car with stock firewall. One thing i can agree on is that it is still independent suspension and cv axles are used. But not bmw by any means.

    Is this still a street car? I'm guessing with the Powerglide it pretty much just sees the strip.

    First 8 second US BMW with full body and independent rear suspension - Djborya goes 8.97@153 in his E30

    Congratulations to BimmerBoost member djborya (Boris) who managed to break the 8 second barrier in the 1/4 mile with this turbo E30 BMW. As far as BMW's in the USA are concerned, this is the only one we know of to get in the 8's that is not a tube chassis dedicated drag car. The vehicle has a full body, BMW independent rear suspension, and runs E85 fuel. The 80mm turbo makes 836 horsepower to the wheels through a 2-speed powerglide transmission.

    This is likely the world's only BMW with an independent rear to make it into the 8's. Impressive and one of the fastest BMW's in the USA as well as the world. Congratulations Boris!

    Boris,

    Are you part of the Slightly Overbuilt Motorsports? I think I saw this car and a twin black E30 down at MIR last October, but it looked like a 5 speed. Is the powerglide new?

    Yes the powerglide transmission was added over the winter last year it was still bmw 5 speed. And no i am not affiliated with Slightly Overbuilt, however we are good friends and talk/race together often.
