Watch as this 1305 HP 2JZ Powered BMW E30 M3 smashes out a 7:26 BTG Nurburgring lap by driver Vidar Jødahl.
Not your typical E30 M3 owner who tend to be a purist and keep these vehicles in original condition, this 2JZ Powered BMW E30 is modified for driving hard for various events.
Vidar Jødahl’s E30 BMW M3 is powered by a 2JZGTE with 1305 HP, 1163 LB-FT of torque using a Garrett GTX4294R turbocharger with 43 psi of boost.
The power is via a Sellholm MPG sequential transmission and E34 sourced BMW M5 rear differential. Adjustable coilover suspension is is by Sellholm and the brakes are 6 piston front and E46 M3 rear brakes.
I particularly like the race focused stack dash setup!
Speedhunters did a special feature a few years ago where you can find some more info on the build and specifications.
Great work by the Buldre Racingteam and Vidar Jødahl over in Germany who have created this monster, be sure to check them out as they have some other great content and builds.
It seems EKanoo and the team have been at it again, this time taking their Pro Import GT86 over to the US to see what they can run.
Gary White ran it down the Michigan 1/4 mile at – 5.891 @ 388kph (241mph), breaking the US import record. Although not breaking their previous 5.77 @ 399kph (248mph) world record it’s a pretty impressive feat after a few runs.
Congratulations to the EKanoo Racing team! It will be interesting to see where this car and it’s development go from here.
Did we ever doubt that a 2JZ powered vehicle would be the first in the 5 second 1/4 mile club? No we didn’t!
Although this may be old news to some, I held off posting EKanoo Racing Supra’s 5 second 1/4 mile run as these guys were breaking records left right and centre. An amazing effort by the EKanoo team and another great drive job by Gary White.
Best E.T – 5.97 @ 387kph (240mph)
Best trap speed – 6.00 @ 394kph (245mph)
World’s first 5 second import
World’s Fastest Supra
World’s Fastest 2JZ powered vehicle
In addition they also ran a 6.65@356KM/H (221MPH) in the Toyota 86 with the 2JZ combo, making it the world’s fastest 86 down the 1/4 mile.
Also I’m glad Khalid Mohammed’s recovered and walked away uninjured after this nasty crash in the Twin Turbo Lexus ISF.
It’s been a while since I put anything up from E.Kanoo Racing, but they are still at it with the supra. This time in the 10.5 outlaw supra – email@example.comKM/H. So close to a 5 second supra, an amazing achievement and another great drive job by Gary White.
This event is to see who is the fastest (and has the highest top speed) from a standing start over a 1000m (1km) airport runway in an regional Australian town (Cooma, NSW – close to 1000m altitude). No race fuels, no nitrous, and only on street radial tyres.
This year the event was even better for my car, no ignition or major boost issues, I had a tune on e85 with some adjusted cam tuning, new tyres and the new turbo setup. More details on my build can be found HERE.
