Still a great accomplishment, basically +40whp with cams and a tune.
We (the N52) guys almost had Schricks. I hate it when you're right about things - cams did this M54 wonders.

It would be interesting to see what the DISA inlet manifold would offer with your Shricks.
Would it be best of both worlds - good top end and plenty of low torque........ or would it kill the benefit of the shricks?

Real Life Driving

How are you finding the engine response as a daily driver?

Do you miss the torque in the lower/mid revs?

It's good as a DD, but the old motor was definitely better for torque off the line. That said, I'm very happy with this engine. Makes plenty more power once the tach starts moving. Plus, I'll eventually regain some torque when I switch my exhaust manifold to headers.

This motor is civilized enough that my 16 y/o is learning to drive it and now prefers it to my Tacoma for his trips around town, imagine that, LOL....

First HPDE a few weeks ago. Engine was great; pulls hard where it needs to and keeps up with plenty of "M" badges. I had a blast and have a long way to grow my abilities to match the car.

Ive been day-dreaming how my car would be with a M54 motor... Miss that torque
