They fixed the fuel pump issue. I am not too sure why they left that beautiful piece of machinery behind. Maybe they are using the N54 (with some upgraded internals ) for the upcoming M3 and were just planning ahead. My N54 was a love/hate relationship.
My last N54 had consistant issue ( fuel pump failures, water pump failure, turbo failure, transmission issues, DME replacement, replaced the bearing ledge, camshaft and finally the back window wouldn't stay up... That thing was officially a lemon, now when she was running properly she was a beast with catback exhaust and a full ECU remapping.
But my previous 2 were no where near as bad.

I had 3 trips due to injectors, other than that it was perfect.

It was more beneficial for BMW as the N55 is cheaper to build while maintaining the same power and torque numbers. It also supposedly yields a better torque curve (with a little better torque earlier in the power band). The Twin Power engines also add Valvetronic Variable Valve Lift. Perhaps one of the biggest reasons is that the N55 is going in the direction of BMW's efficient dynamics program.

Ahh, this is so true. Pho is also my go to hangover food. If you haven't had it after a night of drinking, you should give it a try.

Miami and Stone, a couple of fine gentlemen for sure, it was nice to meet you guys. We'll try for a better showing next time.

Welcome, rok8man. Great to have you on board.

Confirmed they send it with the car, so I should have them when the car gets here. Unless for some reason the PDC folks remove it which I don't think so :-)

I think you're safe since I haven't heard back from anyone. Maybe lunchtime next week works better for everyone.

Either way, keep me posted. Thanks for organizing this MiamiB. I know Binh (CyclePimps) and Chris (RambleJ) are in the area, so hopefully we can find a day when they are free. It would be great to see all the other DFW Festers that have chimed in on this thread too!
