Here are some numbers I'll re-post - 274 (267 according to C&D) lb-ft tq at 4,800 rpms, 321 hp at 6,800 rpms for the ATS 3.6. My little 330i N52 makes its max 220 lb-ft tq at 2,750 rpms.
I have not driven the ATS 3.6 but I had plenty of seat time behind a N55 powered 335. It pulls hard but it is nothing special in stock form, IS350 felt stronger. I personally prefer NA power delivery to a FI one. At the end of the day numbers don't lie and the ATS 3.6 is right up there with the N55. Given the choice I personally would take the 3.6.
