Looks like Papadakis Racing is the first company to put the new Supra engine over 1000hp on E85 at 42lbs of boost. Good video, lots of one off fab just to get the engine on the dyno.

Yes i know its a BMW engine.

How about hooking it to the coil trigger wire? The coil is hot whenever the key is on.

I know. My kids are coming for a week and I just turned the heater on in our camper. I'm guessing it's gonna cost me $100 to heat the thing for the next 7 days.

Get one of those little diesel ones.

Mine will heat my truck camper in 30 degree weather on 2.5 gallons of diesel for over a week.

diesel what? It's a full blown 5th wheel RV. I have no need for an aftermarket heater vs the $40 it takes to fill a propane tank once a year.

You just said it was 100 for a week

Regardless, this is what I'm talking about, it uses the normal ducting and runs on diesel fuel and 12v.

Actually that guy is pretty cool. Does it go in the camper in place of your propane heater?

Not as a plug and play, mine is in my battery compartment and I just ran the ducts to the existing ducts.

We found that heated mattress pads helped to minimize heater usage in our camper in colder weather.
