Anyone know exactly how this power is achieved and if we can buy some OEM parts to obtain the extra power and torque of the N55HP?
BMW Performance has a Power kit for the 3- and the X5/X6 N55 that bumps power to the 40i/N55HP level (20hp, 32lbft). Kit is an ECU tune, auxiliary water cooler and an enhanced radiator fan. There is also a kit for the TTV8 (50i, 40HP and 80lbft).

I have no idea of why this Power kit has not been offered for the F10.
