not really a build as such, retaining stock internals turbo and injectors :(

still impressive figures though :)

Never really thought about it before, but can you get bigger injectors for diesels like that? It's easy for a petrol but never heard of it on diesels.

Why would you need to when you can get that much power from the standard ones? :eek: . Other components in the car (like the gearbox) reach their limit way before the injectors do.

Good as an experiment to see how far the engine and certain internals can be done. Wouldn't like it as my car and no real purpose as I'd imagine you could have got a petrol car just as quick with the money spent on the tuning.

Always interesting to see how far a car/engine can be pushed though.

Wouldn't say it's 'barry' at all - seems he's done everything to pretty high standards.

On the road....
A Diesel 5 Series that'll match - I'd imagine - an e39 M5! :eek:

Wow! :cool:

It'll probably cost almost as much to keep on the road mind you......

Not what I'd call a bill, and he's probably removed any bemefit of the diesel.... I'd still love a go
