Every once in a while you see something that is mildly strange. Ok maybe very very strange. Here is a perfect example of a person with too much time, an extremely cheap source of fine german parts and little to no sense.
It is still an unfinished project, so we can’t knock it while it’s still in constructions, but daayyym it sure is different.
Take a 3.6L 6 cyl out of an early M5 with 315 ponies. Add a Garrett GT45… the rest is history..
Does it hook? Not yet… Does it spool? Not quite… Is it one off? Definitely…
While not underpowered, the 1990’s Nissan 200SX S13 with its 205Hp turbocharged 2.0-liter engine could have done with a few more extra horses under its hood. But these Swedish guys took the phrase ‘a few more ponies’ to the extreme by swapping the 200SX’s 4-cylinder unit with a 315Hp 3.6-liter straight-six from a 1990’s BMW M5 E34.
And if that wasn’t enough, they also added a Garret GT45 turbocharger on the bimmer engine. We don’t have any output figures but that Bavarian-powered 200SX S13 sure sounds sweet!
