We began watching this insane engine build a few months ago from legendary drift team Papadakis Racing. This build has had us particularly interested because this is the B58 motor from BMW that's manufactured in Austria through Magna Steyr.

Watch as they go for 1000+ hp with their first ever runs on the engine dyno!

No you should absolutely go back to the beginning of the video and watch the entire thing. It's a fascinating watch to hear about how they actually went about making this beast.

Then at 6:35, disaster. What actually happened, if you didn't watch the video, was that they actually melted one of the injectors due to the high fuel pressures, boost, and temperatures. With a quick, and fairly ingenious fix, they were back at it and...

YES! They made 1000hp with the new Supra engine. Absolutely bonkers. Congrats to the Papadakis team. Now they did say that this isn't the end of this engine's journey, which is awesome to hear. Hopefully we'll see this in a car, maybe a even a drift car, going nuts on a track very soon.

Here's hoping.
