    High resolution side profile shot of the N20B20 revealing the manifold

    Sorry to give you pictures of the motor in bits and pieces like this, but they are hard to come by. Earlier this month we showed a low resolution picture of the motor. It was the best we had, until now. We have a high resolution side profile shot of the motor revealing some more details. Does not seem to be too large of a turbo sitting in there.

    I would love to see a cutaway shot. That looks like a really well thought out, compact engine. Hopefully the internals and fuel system are strong enough to support replacing the tiny exhaust manifold, turbo, and intercooler and increasing the boost.

    I'm hoping space constraints aren't going to be a problem on this one.

    If I were RB, Shiv, Terry, CPE etc... I would get my hands on one of these things ASAP; its going to be the next tuner car of the decade. Whoever can offer the first bolt on turbo upgrade plus tune will be banking.

    So I see a FAT cylinder head. Man that thing is huge! Reminds me of the older 318's. I never did understand why the engine was so wide. Anyway, it appears to be a chain driven engine, so that's not new for BMW but see what looks like an A/C compressor and not a power steering pump. Are they going electric? Also, is that an electric water pump too? Hmmm. This little guy might be able to bang off 30 MPG no problem. It looks like it also has that funky vaccuum wastegate though. that makes things harder for the aftermarket, right?

    Interesting insight.

    I don't know if it is just me though but that turbo looks baby sized, just freaking tiny.

    It's not the size of the ship, its how you sail it! Here's a picture of a k03 and a k04 from my 2.0t for reference. It looks about the same. The manifold looks a bit better on the BMW though. Click here to enlarge

    I really hope that the turbo can flow like or better than the k04!

    ^ Those look bigger to me but hard to tell really.

    This motor should likely be similar to the 2.0t in many respects, which is a good thing.

    It is very similar to the TSI and this is a twinschroll type manifold so i like it.

    looking at the k04/k03, damn sticky you're right it the turbos look tiny like the mini cooper s turbos and those turbos are mini sized.

    The runners to each scroll do look good, I just wish the turbo itself was a bit bigger. No doubt this engine will have a large following, I'm guessing much larger than the N52. It will be a fun motor.

    Will be no comparison to N52. Although with the entry level for boost being pushed down even further I'm afraid the amount of brats with boosted BMW's is going to quadruple.

    That's not always a bad thing. Sure, you'll have to fish through a lot of "what should I do to my N20 to make it fast" threads, but it will help the aftermarket for all of us.

    True, more volume but also more of the poorly educated and entitled BMW crowd that doesn't really fit in here. Maybe a good thing though for everyone, we will just have to wait and see. I am excited about the positive prospects.
