I drive an X6 5l twin turbo. Dont like new cars much and dont like any other BMWs

My project is a 69 C10 Chev, every single panel and part hand fabricated, Lexus engine with twin turbo, twin superchargers and NOS. 3 years in the making and less than a month till ready to drive. I am mechanically spastic so have done no mods myself. My builder is a genius, so it works out good.


The X6 is a fun vehicle, but it has a shockingly small interior given the external dimensions.  It appears to have been made for people under 5’8”. Sad

The back seat is only good for your cat or a bag of groceries.

You got a point, I mostly only use the front seats or sometimes the little kids in the back. My wife drives a Q7 which is really practical for the big family car.

X6 drives like sports car on the open road.

I currently have an '06 H2 Hummer, '05 Dodge Ram Hemi Quad Cab, and a basically stock '77 Yellow Corvette with manual tranny.  Rather than purchasing a new vehicle, I plan on swapping a Duramax into the H2.  Still not quite sure what I want to do with the Vette, however...I have a ton of options.

Past cars have included:

'01 Trans Am....Forged Heads/Cam, 4000 Stall, 150 Wet Shot + 150 Dry Shot...dynoed at 683 RWHP 714 RWTQ...ran a best of 10.31 up at old Moroso track on a hot, shitty August day.  I think I'd hit high 9's if track conditions were better and it were cooler out.

'85 Trans Am....High compression 383 stroker putting out close to 500 RWHP on a 3-speed Auto...car was a fuckin' blast to drive.

'79 Lincoln Town Car Continental.....the picture below was basically what it was....I had plans for swapping a 5.9 Cummins into it but there was just too much rust that would be too costly to properly fix.  I sold it...was a damn boat, though.

Full 25.2 chassis, all carbon body, 855 cubic inches, 4 stages of nitrous, 3 speed lenco, 5.80s at over 240mph in the 1/4. I am lucky enough to work on cars like these and be part of pit crews, and every now and then drive them, but I would never want to own one. LOL

My parents have 87 Lincoln Town Car with the 5.0, single exhaust, they had a 78 T-Bird, Diamond Jubliee Edition, with the 351 in it. I believe I could have done something with that, with my dad's help at the time, but he is cheap. They junked it.

My dream car when I was a teenager was a 1988 Fiero GT and the late 80s early 90s Acura Legend Coupe, specifically the mid 90s one with 230 hp, and the Acura Vigor.

Beautiful shade of blue, highlights the exaggerated curves of the Camaro.
I was just watching some Horsepower Freaks and Active Autowerke vids...

No, never been, to be honest I'm not into drag racing, but appreciate the engineering and time that goes into it---I love the car shows. The closest one near me is MIR ( Buds Creek?) which is about 3 hours away. I couldn't justify that. Although, when I was a teenager, the guy across the street had a trans am that he took down there.
I am going to make it a point to go to one.

1996 HKS twin turbocharged MKIV Supra, 6-speed hardtop, 56k original miles.
Dyno'd 650hp on conservative boost for street driving, and just over 900hp
at full boost (45psi)






Who needs traction  Grin

Modded a r32 gtr to just over 700hp - 10 second street car , was heaps of fun - ended up dropping nearly 100k into though

Do you know Mike Murillo?

A good friend of mine worked at his shop for years, he used to take his turbo cars to lunch all the time.

I go to the drags in Houston every year.

i have spoke to him at the track many times in the staging lanes, just small talk about clutch stuff or track conditions but i wouldnt say i know him, his turbo stuff runs great though. we were testing at a track near dallas when he was testing the car that had the turbos in the trunk

i love going to houston, the air is usually very good there, easy to make alot of power.

We have it pretty good down here near sea level. Seen a lot of guys from up north come down here and run their best times. As long as the track is prepped well the racing down here is always top notch.

Mike has some cool ideas and his shop is amazing, i haven't been out to it in a few years though.
