I assume you misread. I said B, not N. N20B20 and N26B20 both are 2.0 liters as their names suggest.

Now obviously the B58/B57 don't follow these guidelines. So either they just skipped using the B68/B67 monikers, or maybe the N55 replacement code has been reported incorrectly.
Thank you. I wasn't aware of the .5L naming policy. Way to ruin a perfectly sane naming policy though, I like the old one much better.
