In addition, manufacturers have different ideas of what it means durable.
The engine must retrieve his power anytime, anywhere permanently. Whether it's at sea level at -60 C in Sweden, or at +60 C at 3,000 meters above the Death Valley.

And I can guarantee that a N54 creates even with modifications under these conditions, no 450 hp without going broke!
This is not true, to achieve 400 bhp all you need to do is tune the car. If one adds bolt ons, the N54 can easily make 450bhp.
