A Russian gearhead has swapped out the stock 258HP engine of his BMW F25 X3 with a tri-turbo diesel borrowed from an M50d, boosting power all the way to 550HP and 738 lb-ft of torque. The new engine, gearbox, and intake system allows the X3 to hit a quarter-mile in 12 seconds flat, reach 125mph in 9.5 seconds, and drift like a king in the Russian backcountry. Watch the owner makes the most out of his street legal X3's M50d engine swap in the videos below.
