The V8s had a few years of dominance in Formula Drift until Daigo Saito showed up putting down well north of 900whp out of his 2JZ with a Garrett by Honeywell GTX4294R turbocharger and some nitrous on top. Last year, Mike Essa took his GTX3582R turbocharged BMW inline-6 engine out of the Z4 and placed it in an E46 chassis more suitable for drifting.
