Last season, I had the pleasure of showing off my friend Matt’s ridiculously fast BMW E30 that is powered by a Mitsubishi 4G63 turbo engine. Back then, it was running 10.53 and 132 MPH, but he had mentioned that he had a lot more horsepower on tap for when he wanted it. So, rather than cranking the power up and watching parts scatter down the length of the track, this past winter Matt and the Infamous Performance crew put in work. They back-half’ed the car, swapped in a new SERIOUS transmission, and took it for a shake down pass this past weekend. On the first day out, without ever hitting 9′s before, Matt ripped off a 9.7 second quarter mile time at 140 miles per hour. As always, I have the video evidence for your entertainment.
Will Matt scrape into the 8′s this season? Sign up for the 1A Blog email and you’ll be the first to know WHEN it happens! Oh. It. Will. Happen.
