    • 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.

        It's common to do a compound setup to reach very high boost levels or to aid in spool.

        I think those pics are from an earlier setup though and now they are just doing one big single.

        The single set up should produce nicer numbers.. no?

        Hmm I wonder what their reason for switching to a single is, anyone know? Unfortunately the vid is blocked at my work place so I'm sorry if it's mentioned there.

        I'm guessing tuning complications.

        Most likely right, compound setups are hard to get down from what I understand.
