It also has a new closed deck block and stronger forged crankshaft that the other two engines do not have, and it is designed to run 600 RPM higher than those engines as well.

With that in mind, it is my guess that the S55 will be able to at least equal the highest output FBO tuned N54s out there, when modified similarly. Those are at, what, 470 whp or thereabouts?
Well said. On a sidenote: The N54 has a forged crankshaft which the N55 doesn't have.
