    More detailed photos of the BMW N20 Turbo 2.0 Liter Direct Injected Four Cylinder + Video

    BMW released more detailed hi-res photos of the new N20 4 cylinder turbo. These give a good look into the size of the turbo, design of the manifold, as well as the cams. They also released a video about their new "Efficient Dynamics" engine family. We are looking forward to seeing how this motor will be tuned and wondering if VALVETRONIC will cause any complications in tuning.

    Everything went very wrong with this robot at 1:31 when he started puting engines in enginebays the wrong way!
    What are they thinking at BMW?

    Does this look any better than current WV 2.0 turbocharged engines? As far as tuning potential goes?

    3 cylinder turbo, sounds pretty cool.

    I wonder what 6 cylinder engine they were referring to in the video.

    I wonder if the new minis have enough space for it, it looks small enough and I'm sure mini owners wouldn't mind a small bump in power.

    No balance shafts? I wonder how they got away with that? I wonder how the oil pump will be connected to the rest of the system. Also what the hell is that goofy looking cam with the roller bearings on it? Are they running the injectors off of it, like an old diesel? -after looking at the video, it looks like it's for some variable lift cam stuff. The fuel pump looks ALOT like the VW pump, so that is actually good.

    I expect to see this motor in the 500's with turbo upgrades which will come WAY sooner than they did for the N54.

    lets hope they gave it forged internals like the n54 then i can see that being a very easy.

    Freaking manifold looks to be a one piece with the turbo. Why in the hell does BMW like to do that? I can't think of a single benefit?

    Cost and to clamp down on tuning. Don't worry about it, we'll get manifolds for it.

    Cost? Why would it be cheaper to cast them together? Also what about the cost of replacing a turbo under warranty? Put a vband on it and it's a 30 minute swap plus saving the cost of the manifold. When has someone seen a stock cast log manifold get damaged.
