    • Finally, a shot of the new N20B20 4 cylinder turbo motor in its entirety

      The vast majority of BMW blogs and sites on the net posted pictures of the N20 sitting in an engine bay with a plastic cover. That did not do much for us to be able to see the actual motor. Well, a shot of the motor has surfaced that also reveals the size of the intercooler. This is all we have so far but we are hoping more photos and details of the motor will surface soon.

        It depends on if the DME is Bosch or Siemens.

        Fueling is going to be a problem as well, although the 2.0t FSI guys have figured it out so maybe the BMW guys can too. GT30R + this motor, fun times.

        I wonder if two of the stock turbos from this motor can fit under an N54... Since they are already small, I am sure one of the 2.0 turbos flows more than one of the N54 turbos. Maybe that is an option.

        I doubt it, it would be like why can't small stock turbos already on the market fit under the N54?

        As weird as it sounds, I'm more excited about this motor than I ever was about the N54.

        The lower the price of admission, the more aftermarket parts available in my experience. Looks promising

        We may be able to see greater volume from BMW aftermarket manufacturers which may lead to lower material costs and prices on other platforms. Maybe... they have already gotten used to premium pricing though.

        Lower prices for a larger volume product is inevitable, that's why capitalism and competition is always better for the consumer. This will be a cheaper platform to mod for sure.
