Awhile again, we noticed a whole tear-down of the BMW B58 engine from a Toyota Supra. The tear-down was executed by Stephan Papadakis, of Papadakis Racing, and he went into nice element about how the engine was constructed and the kind of engineering tech it had. It was an fascinating video that confirmed off simply how spectacular the B58 engine is.
The explanation for the tear-down was not simply to elucidate the engine, although. Papadakis wished to tune the engine to make a ton of energy for his Toyota Supra mission automobile. Seems, Papadakis wished to make 1,000 hp from the BMW B58, which makes 335 hp in inventory Supra-guise. That’s an enormous energy bump, clearly, so rather a lot needed to be modified.
On this new video, we get to see what Papadakis did to create 1,000 hp from a BMW B58 engine and it’s fairly superior to look at. What’s actually spectacular is that the block and crankshaft stay precisely the identical. Based on Papadakis, the crank appears robust sufficient to deal with 1,000 hp with out modification. That’s a reasonably good testomony to how robust BMW’s engines are.
Nonetheless, not a lot else stays inventory, because it’s been given new pistons, valves, a brand new consumption monifold, exhaust manifold, a brand new turbocharger and two new waste gates, simply to call just a few issues. When it’s all stated and executed and assembled, it appears to be like nice. However as a nerd, this video is superior to look at. Papadakis does an incredible job of assembling the complete engine, explaining every little thing and making it pleasurable to look at.
The BMW B58 engine could be very spectacular by itself nevertheless it looks like it has a ton of tuning potential, which ought to make Supra fanatics very comfortable. Supras have famously used extremely tunable turbocharged inline-six engines (named 1JZ and 2JZ), so when the brand new automobile moved to a BMW engine, a whole lot of fanatics have been apprehensive. This video ought to put them comfortable as a result of it appears as if this new engine could make gobs and gobs of energy.
