Big twin turbo X5m - VA motorsport?

Has anyone seen this X5M?

First, I haven't seen or heard of anyone doing big turbos like this on the X5M. Second, I have to have a little laugh at the routing of all of that piping.

I've seen this before. Unless they've worked a way past the stock transmission, there are simpler bolt ons currently (likely far less cost, too) that'll push the transmission past its limits as is. 1000hp is great and all, but if you can't use it, what's the point.

DGAutowerks on Instagram has an F10 550I with a single turbo conversion on it that's much cleaner looking but I don't know what transmission they use.
