Ghassan Automotive is a company in Stillwater, Oklahoma that specializes in BMW repair and upgrades. For the past three months the company has been building a BMW 135i E82 to go drag racing. The engine is a turbocharged and built N54 inline-six that will make 1,000+ horsepower. The engine features a sleeved and closed deck block, forged rods and pistons, upgraded valves, ARP head and main studs, and AEM Infinity ECU. Power will go to the rear slicks through a factory BMW six-speed manual and Lewis FAB9 rear end with Strange third-member and axles. The back-halfed race car will be certified for 7.5 seconds in the quarter-mile. The company plans on eventually replacing the manual for a built TH400 automatic when they decide to pursue the 7’s.
