In the meantime another N55 turbo option is/was expected to be tuned a week+ or so ago, so we expect that will be soon. It will be interesting to see how that goes, if it pushes any limits of the other N55 systems/engine/etc of which will help determine how viable an even bigger upgrade will stand to the platform. Simply prioritization's for now, but this certainly is not off the radar entirely.

Thanks for keeping us abreast of the situation. Completely plausible you'd like to focus on n54 cars for the time being, being that's your cash cow until the n55's overtake the 335/135/535/x1/x3/x5 scene become the more dominant platform.

I'm holding out for your upgrade! I like a completely separate platform, built from the ground up, the manifold and setup as it stands is inhibiting the engine gains plus this opens the door for bolting on a different BW turbo down the road as well, and perhaps an external wastegate if necessary.

Good luck and I'll be glued to this thread
