    "It pulls all the way until redline"
    That is not an attribute of the N54 motor, unfortunately.
    Unless of course they lowered the redline for the 1M, which is highly unlikely.

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    there has been significant testing as to the top end of the n54 on stock turbos. one of those testers is very well known, hotrod182. he posted a while back (backed-up by his v-box) that shifting at redline versus shifting at a lower rev, say 6200 revs, offered little difference in trap or ET. now, all of his tests for this were on meth i believe, and that has a big help in the top end timing. even though with stock turbos you're dropping hp at redline with a steep torque drop, the momentum and increasing revs somehow equal shifting early, even though the powerband says otherwise.

    all that said, this car definitely has an N54. it sucks they have to limit the power output to 340 in order to not step on the m3's toes. either way should be a fun little car and i hope i can see a bunch on the road in miami to whoop on Click here to enlarge that is unless they get upgraded turbos too Click here to enlarge

    It's a propaganda piece from BMW. They stuck that in there to get people thinking it is strong up top like the old NA motors to dissuade and lessen that criticism.

    I really don't see anything in this more than some M diff pieces and tuned up suspension, aside from what the N54 community already has done to their current vehicles. I guess only time will tell...
