You paid the same price for a better engine all around then the N54. Stock vs stock. BMW engineering unfortunately wasn't looking for max performance when aftermarket tuning was involved. They were focused on emissions, durability, longevity and all that fun government crap. The N55 IS a better motor then the N54 stock vs stock. Thats what you paid for.
multiple threads to forged internals in early build N54. gets your facts right, later n54's 09 an up aren't forged where as earlier build were. how would you consider the N55 motor better? the N54 isn't an issue at all its surrounding components that have issues. IE: HPFP, LPFP........
but don't start talking
