Thank you.
BMW should do Direct Injection, which usually add's 15-17% in power an fuel efficiency. Then you add brake regen, along with the start stop and any other new BMW tech and it should easily put out 450HP and get 18/22mpg.

Yeah, the mileage won't be as good as a turbo, but at least you'll have a REAL //M engine.
They should have then blown this engine and put it in the F10 M5.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
