BMW E36 with a Twin-Turbo 1UZ V8

Alek Projekt has enjoyed drifting their BMW E36 for the past two years. Unfortunately the car’s motor, a twin-turbo Toyota 1UZ V8 suffered a significant failure last year. They rebuilt the V8 with forged rods, 8.4:1 compression pistons, ported heads, ŚWIĄTEK custom camshafts, Brian Crower valve springs, 2200 cc injectors, and 89 mm throttle body. The motor should be good for 900+ horsepower thanks to two Dr.Turbo Holset HX40 turbochargers. During the downtime they also installed a nitrous oxide system and moved the radiator to the trunk.
