    Can IE cast pistons handle boost?

    running cast pistons in a turbo motor is verboten, unless you want to rebuild it again, manufactures use cast pistons because they are cheap, top-end performance can build any thing you need they are a JE dealer, JE is equal to Mahle but Mahle does not build custom pistons unless you are a nascar team.

    BMW 1800 TISA

    Jim, we both should travel to Muchin to see our old friend #182, you had the vision to keep it in good condition, I had the vision to build it before the masses saw what potential there was there, I enjoyed building it into a monster, on the track, hearing the laughter from those uninformed individuals that pointed at it and laughed, Developed great friends with the alfa crew, that knew about the whispering bomb, thank you Von Falkenhausen for having the vision to build them, Hahne and Josef Schnitzer making it a sedan class champion winner, the TISA is revered by BMW because it started their road back to being the unbeatable mark on the road and race track.

    BMW 1800 TISA

    I bought #182 from jim, he picked me up at san jose air port in his e30 bmw, i looked at the car that was listed in the roundel, no one knew about tisa or what they were ,but I did because i have been into bmws sense 1971, and doing reading about them, doug was the buyer, I built the car for him , sept bought it from doug, I enjoyed building it I did not enjoy dealing with them. where is the car now, and do you have pictures of it now?

    BMW 1800 TISA

    This is #182 in its prime at jack murphy stadium in san deigo 1988, unbeknown to me a welded spider rear diff was put in the car by bavarian rinsport , which made the car useless to drive on the track. I am standing behind the car

    BMW 1800 TISA

    look in may 1988 Roundel page 58 59 that me standing next to Herbie #53 this car was built by me not any one else, and not bill homes or carl nelson , which are not BMW Master mechanic s, I have the oldest schuling pass in the us and worked at 7 bmw dealers on both coast, and I am still building high output bmw engines and race cars, the tisa was built when i was also building a gt-3 2002, a road race M3 for la carrara, look it up it was made to start last and past the entire field of of cars and finished #8 out of about 80 cars . the tisa was very fun to build but twisted the other bmw shops at the time, I never let the negative influence my quest to win with all the other cars I built and campaign with other owners , I am currently restoring a 1972 tii with a e12 engine, one of about 300 built, building a 2000cs resto mod with e46 m3 drive train, BMW mach schell Bruce M-tuner
