    Every now and then, stuff pops up on the net that makes you wonder how they manage to fly under the radar for so long.

    A tuning shop that does work for F1, WRC, F2, along with some very deep pocketed Joe Public was one such find. You'd think people would be all over it sooner. I suppose that's what "behind closed doors" are for.

    I some how stumbled onto a thread from a thread from a thread, as you do when trying to avoid work.

    If you follow the original thread the OP gets it in the neck from the "big boys" until he starts to show numbers and pictures.

    He is a tuner first, what people do with his engines is their business.

    I have quoted the original poster from one forum (http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1575817)who has cherry picked the best from the original poster on another forum (http://forums.evolutionm.net/evo-dyno-tuning-results/447351-highest-hp-4g63-engine-2007-a.html)

    Unreal;

    :huh

    That's about a 9.9 on the in-freaking-sane-o-meter.

    Cool post!

    I saw that last week on Miata.net's forum. Impressive build.

    But I have to say it. I hate the word "billet." :puke2 :baldy Fer cryin' out loud -- it's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO overused.

    Super trick stuff.....sure is pretty. Wonder what a healthy V8 like a L88 based design would do with all that trickery in it....5000rwhp?

    It doesn't mean anything in the context of a "billet crankshaft" A billet is a piece of material including wood, also where soldiers live. A crankshaft can be machined from a billet of metal.

    Okay, enough of that. Wow!

    I think it would have been cheaper to buy a gas turbine helicopter engine for that car :rofl

    I know. That's why I hate the word in its usage in most forums...

    I'de love to see what they could do with a 2JZ... Mk 4 Supra's are probably one of the most beautiful cars in my opinion...

    Dear sweet Jesus. :eek1


    NOW I know what I would do if I won the $355 million.

    Probably not ... the L88 lacks volumetric efficiency. It's why you can squeeze so much more HP per liter out of multi-valve dohc stuff. Plus of course you're comparing apples to oranges.

    However .. wonder what sort of gains they could do with say a Northstar V8?

    Good point, I did think about the whole effeciency deal. But though since a stock L88 was truly rinning in the 450hp range it would be easy to build it over 2K with all the trick stuff.

    That is berserk! My WRX is just over 250whp on a conservative dyno and it's stupid fast, so these cars are other-worldly.

    That dyno graph definitely makes me think of a serious on-off bipolar bare back bronco f...

    It would be eye opening to say the least. :huh

    Oh absolutely ... :evil

    Normally aspirated ... without any of the titanium stuff is kicking out 715 hp

    More aggressive cam profile, a couple of banks turbos, and the titanium stuff it should be able to get in that range. Of course if you really went exotic and into the pro-stock realms ... those guys are getting huge numbers out of the big V8's

    Its like a two-stroke... all or nothing... gotta be quite a ride....

    throw an anti-lag system in and that would be down-right lethal...

    SICK!

    I wonder what transmission they're going to try to put that much power through... the Evo transmissions are a step up from the older DSM stuff (which still, in my opinion weren't as bad as people make them out to be), but 2000 horsepower is WAY outside their intended operating envelope.

    The point is that those parts, unlike factory parts in the vast majority of cases, are not post-machined cast pieces, and thus there are higher levels on control on grain structure, consistency, etc. Being made from billet doesn't inherently make something better, but it is a distinctly different manufacturing process.

    In addition to having a VE advantage, they also have a big engine speed advantage, which work together to give huge potential. All the VE in the world doesn't do you any good if you're spinning 1000 RPM! :)

    1500HP at 6500 RPM (as per the dyno chart) is about 1200 ft-lbs. :D

    I don't see any way they're going to put that much power down anyway, even AWD drag cars with slicks will rip with that much power. The ExViTermini skyline (I wonder if that guy is still around...) was RIDICULOUS with similar power.

    these guys have amazing abilities and very rich customers. the engine is a beautiful artifact but i keep wondering how do you put that much power to the ground? whata are the dynamic abilities of a 2000bhp evo8?
    or maybe i am missing the whole point and this thing is only meant to be driven in a straight line or not meant to be driven at all and it is just a collectors engineering exemplar.:evil

    Coincidently, I found this last night looking at GTOs. Not quite as trick...with an automatic.
