My point is that turbo engines inherently have high heat loads and are much more sensitive to heat.

I had an N54 and even in hot days in Canada she was blazing. I added the huge Dinan oil cooler and it still was hot.

BMW now is going to extract the most power they ever had out of that poor 3.0l I6. It is a risky recipe. I wish they had a better idea than an S55.

M3 drivers are not M5 drivers, its a totally diff crowd.
