What an amateurish video. Sentient robots? Really??

Today I learned that 3-cylinder engines are created by using a frickin' laser to slice through a straight-6.

I just hope SkyNet doesn't become self-aware before that Terminator finishes making all these new engines.

Probably not a whole lot. It's already running pretty stout boost targets...

It won't be like the N54 or anything if that's what you are thinking...

damn it all then lol

But I figure it might be in a better place than the N52 as far as tuning.
I guess we will have to wait and see.

I can't wait to drive a car with the 3-cylinder turbo. It should be sweet.

It should be interesting to see how BMW execute the TwinPower Turbo on a 3 cylinder engine. I know there has been quite a bit of discussion of doing two inlets for an off number of cylinders.
