The guy doubled the hp of his engine without going FI or by using anything like meth/nitrous. That is impressive.

Comparing that engine to an engine that makes as much hp in stock form is retarded.

I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul.

Can you use a computer to change the time on the e46 clock?

My knob thing broke and it's stuck at 80 min ahead
Why the hell did BMW feel the need to put that shit in anyway? WTF is wrong with having buttons on the head unit like every other goddamned car in existance?

no, the clock in a bmw is not controlled by a computer, it's controlled by a crystal.

No, because with the ls1 you could easily make more than double your HP by doing some of the same stuff that guy does.

the LS1 is a lot cheaper though, you can't beat American engines - especially diesel

If that dude actually spent 15-20k on that engine it's not really impressive at all.

Do you have any idea how much a race engine costs to build?

15-20k is peanuts.

Wes, I'm not doing research. People are easily making a ton of power with LS1's and all the other LS motors

there is a mild ls7. Get over it. If it's one thing 'Mericans know how to do is build motors
