430 HP Turbo M10?


Recommended Posts

Is this to be believed? because Holy Crap... That would be one hell of a monster!


A post from Petrolicious about 2002's on facebook brought this fellow up from Sweden talking about his car, I wonder if he's here>

There's actually one in Sweden with 740whp, but he could've found more horses by now.  Some pics and videos aren't there, but there are pics on the 2nd page.

I would think a 500 hp M10 would be almost durable.


Now, it you get over 1000, that's a qualifying run only, then time for a rebuild.


At least, if I remember the early 80's correctly.

This is very similar to my setup but not as ghetto as this guy! I've kept the authentic 2002 feel in my build and added some more improvement comparing to his setup. I wouldn't believe the stats printed in that link. 430HP is unrealistic when using Garrett 25 (200-330hp max). I'm running better improved setup using disco potato (Garrett GT28R) and will be more than happy to pull even 300hp after my build is completed.

Certainly an interesting way to mount coil packs...





Compensates for never being able to change the spark plugs.

I am running a turbocharged m10 in my 02. 480bhp. They are incredibly fast with the Power to weight ratio! Planning on putting up a thread with Pictures and spec if anyone is interested.


Yes but you're using a flux capacitor Marty.

Its interesting that you say that because in another article they discuss power requirements required to get a car thru the standing 1/4 mile. http://www.autospeed.com/cms/article.html?&A=108704 and according to a couple of graphs, and using the 1/4 mile speed and time (" an easy 12.7-second ET at 114.8 mph ") a 1000kg (one ton) car would need about 200kw (aka 267bhp) which fits your figures to a (G) Tee (25)!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
