Have you heard the term “BiMoto” before? Well, it's about installing and connecting 2 engines in the same vehicle. There are already many projects in competitions that have been done and they are spectacular, taking 4-cylinder cars to powers of more than 600 HP. It sounds pretty burly, don't you think? But this conversion needs much more dedication than the simple fact of using 2 engines; you must work on the stability of the car so that no damage occurs and take care of the temperature of the second engine, which is installed in the back and you have to put air intakes everywhere on the car.
If you have ever tried, or would like in the future to do a BiMoto conversion, you need to prepare yourself mentally for a very long tuning job, a lot of effort and your reward will be a true horsepower monster! This modification fulfills the wildest dreams of tuning! But it also entails the need to have a long journey and knowledge of pimping cars, because it’s difficult to achieve a result that does not have any failures. You also have to do some legal processes to have a BiMoto car, such as approvals by expert workshops and special permits, because we are talking about these speed demons reaching over 250 MPH!
There are many difficulties to overcome, but the great effort will be worth it, because not only will you have a unique car, but faster than any other. Some of the changes that are made to achieve a BiMoto, is to put traction on all wheels and connect them to the engines with a turbo-charger so that the transmission has sufficient strength and doesn’t suffer stress. A con is that space is reduced and almost always only two people can get in the car. But among the thousands of reasons to do this tuning, the second engine is installed so that it can be presumed, for example, changing the trunk or hatchback for an adapted part made of ultra-resistant mesh or plexiglass.
No matter what car you have, whether a BMW or a Metro, surely with 2 engines, everyone will want to see it and will be amazed to see them work. Now, speaking more deeply about the transmission, the most ideal for this conversion is to use a standard one, since the second engine is equipped with another standard transmission, which is installed crosswise to the steering system of the car. In this way, you can easily understand that the original engine is responsible for moving the front axles and the second engine is responsible for moving the rear axles.
Safety recommendations would be installing a sports braking system and a roll cage. There is no doubt that it is a very wild and fun tuning, only for true fans and speed lovers, would you dare to turn your car into BiMoto?
