Soooo.... like I said, based on application?

So the M10 block is better for Formula 1 than say an N54?
the blocks weren't designed to be used for F1 when conceived, so who cares about F1 this doesnt make a block "good". they just raided the parts bin and found the M10 blocks were able to do the job without designing a new one specifically..... whoop dee do "

Why don't you do a backup of your current ROM and upload a BB flash (backend or normal), once Cobb fixes support you just reload the new BMW rom and install the AP? "

I think your statement really depends on application.
assuming newer blocks prove themselves not to fail prematurely outside staistical variations then newer blocks are without a doubt better engineered. in order to make something both lighter and suitable for the application intended requires more knowledge and better understanding of the possible operating conditions, loads in service, duty cycle etc and better understanding of mechanical properties so you dont get it wrong. you need a better understand how structures behave so that material is added in the right areas in an efficient manner. lots of stuff has been and is done by designers (non engineers) eye balling stuff, rules of thumb and that works very often but in the modern world you will never be the best at what you do with this approach

stronger does not mean better unless of course that is a design objective.

anyone can build a bridge, but to design and build something that is light, economical to proiduce and efficient is where engineering comes into it "
