I don't think it will be called the S55Tu simply because the N55 was designed from the outset with Valvetronic. BMW added the Tu suffix to the S63, and later then N63, when those gained Valvetronic throttle operation. That upgrade won't be happening with I6 engine family, so there will be no need for the name change.
