    Not BMW's fault. I think the issue is overrated. The engine responds great to mods and has taken abuse all the way up to the MAP sensor limit. 530WHP+ with nitrous. Almost in the 10s with just bolt ons.

    Not to mention you can have it for relatively cheap. Also the mods for it are cheap.

    I would not be in a BMW if it were not for the N54.

    Not BMW's fault? Who is at fault owners? Not possible since a large number of failures came from unmodded cars. Some cars with 5+ and some with a failure within 1K miles of ownership.

    You didn't really start posting heavily until the end of the year.

    Everyone can't win, you are in good shape for next year though.

    Not what I'm saying. BMW does not manufacture the pumps. They very recently bought the French company that makes them so they can do their own quality control.

    So like with most of life's problems, the answer is blaming the French?

    Slight combo of both.

    Right now Best Product will go to RB Turbos.

    Best motor will go to Mercedes M156 and S65 with a tie, both had big years.

    It also has no mouth, or eyes, or soul.

    Worst speller and grammar are interesting. We could certainly have more forum related categories.

    No ties.

    Man up and pic a winner.Click here to enlarge

    I am usually a bmw guy, but the benz powerplant has done a lot more with less mods. I personally dont think the S65 should be first and I should have a bias.

    The BMW powerplant is putting out more power and has better 60-130's.

    The M156 has more displacement.

    Both have run 10's this year, I think they both deserve it.

    No reason a motor can't be engine of the year more than once.
