Oooh, I don't even have an N55, but I'll still look at this, haha. Any idea if there's a similar document for the N52?

Always great to read these.

This got me thinking though, I would love to know how much power the N55 makes without its turbo charger.

Fantastic! Also, for those interested, the service manual makes reference to controlling oil "churning losses."

Here is a good read on churning losses: alexandria.tue.nl/repository/books/625412.pdf

Forgive me for being naive, but has the S65 one been posted? I searched and couldn't find.

I'd guess less because the bore/stroke of the N54/55 aren't optimized for NA operation.

I know it says N55, but the document does not reference the F30 series. Does this document still apply?
