    I believe the N52 was only 2.5L in North America....but in Europe they got the 3.0L. I have a friend in Europe that had a 3.0L in a Z4...and he said it was almost like an S54 in power character. (He has first hand experience with the M54, and S54) He loved it...but moved to a P car before the boost bug hit.

    We got the 3.0L N52 in the US. I think stock it was about 260 crank hp but people have added bolt on mods to get closer to 290 crank hp. It does not have the high rpm capability and head flow and cams to get S54 power of 333 crank hp.

    I wussed out and weighed both.

    M52B28 block with main caps:



    M52B28 Single Vanos aluminum block without main caps. Weighed main caps with bolts seperately - 8.5lbs
