The Outrageous 1300 Hp 2JZ-Swapped BMW M3 E30 Monster
This is Vidar Jodahl´s Monster, a 2JZ-GTE swapped BMW M3 E30 and it was without doubt the Star Of The Show at Osnabruck Hillclimb last weekend. Not because it won the event overall, but because it simply pounded the tarmac into submission with its outrageous power and torque, at a grand total of 1306Hp/1578Nm (!!!!) . Add to that the spectacular driving style of Mr. Jodahl and the final result is some of the most entertaining footage we have ever presented:
Coming from Norway, this car is normally used on the popular Gatebil Festival where for years it has been raced and drifted in a very serious fashion. Turns out that 2018 marked a new chapter on this Monster´s life, as it started now experimenting with Hillclimb Racing events. And we couldn´t be happier. Seeing this brutal machine tackling the narrow Osnabruck Hillclimb as hard as Mr. Jodahl did is something that will bring a smile to every petrolhead we know.
At the heart of this unique ( and for some quite sacrilegious.. ) BMW M3 E30 unit is this 2JZ-GTE 3.0L, Inline 6 engine unit, famous for being the motor powering the iconic Toyota Supra, and here strengthened with forged pistons and rods from Powerhouse Racing and a set of billet main caps, while also benefitting from better flow thanks to porting of its DOHC 24-valve cylinder head.
With all this coupled to that massive Garrett GTX-42R Turbo, the final result can only be mental. And at 3 bars of boost like this Monster ran on the final day of competition at Osnabruck, the Power and Torque figures reach the outrageous numbers we warned you about in the beginning. It´s 1306Hp/1578Nm... let that sink in...
