The Story

I bought this car new in December 2015 and it stayed stock as a fun commuter car until September 2016 when I decided to install just a simple intake and OTS tune. The car scene in Wisconsin was great and inspired me to set out with the goal of building a street/drag car with an aggressive aesthetic.

The build has seen a number of revisions and is now sitting at 777whp/589ftlb on E60 when turned up. I’ve learned a lot along the way - from doing oil changes to a drivetrain swap, from learning manual to hitting the dragstrip, and much more. The friends and experiences made along the way have been the best part, and I have many to thank for their help in getting this far: TopShelf Performance, Felix Performance, Prime Motoring, and JrTuned to name a few. Looking forward to setting a new personal best at the strip!
