That's a severe design flaw and of the many things known about BMW engines, being under-engineered is not one of their characteristics.
Not to mention impossible if the laws of physics are to hold.
You are just burning fuel in a chamber, unless there is something wrong with the air input, friction is the only other thing that can eliminate from performance. If you had any siginificant friction causing this, the part would wear out and break. I mean it's not really possible unless something is malfunctioning.
