N55 Engine Rebuild - Toronto

Hi Guys, Sadly, my N55 has suffered the spun main bearings issue at 123,000 Kms. Major bummer, but what are you going to do. It's a 2011 E93, long out of warranty. I've reached out to the dealer to see what they can do with BMW Canada on a replacement, but I don't hold out much hope. If I have to rebuild on my own, I'm thinking of working to get the power up to 400+, larger turbo and tune would be my main way to get there. Does anyone know of engine builders in the TO area that will do the job? My mechanic is good to remove the engine and put it back, but we need someone with BMW experience to do the rebuild for us.

Been looking at replacement motors, but we're talking $7K for a used motor, doesn't seem worth it to me.

Any advice and experience is appreciated.

I've also heard very good things about KTM Motorworks in Mississauga.

After doing some research some years ago for my old BMW, I got a quote from Gord Bush Performance in south Etobicoke. I never did go ahead with the rebuild, but I do know other people who are familiar with the place.

Finally heard from BMW.... Too bad, so sad. So I'm outta luck. Looking to get an engine from the wreckers, working with KTM. Fingers crossed it all works out. It seems that when they do the OFHG, it is common for coolant to get in the oil, once that happens, it's only a matter of time. Anyone know of a class action on this issue?? Seems like an easy target.
