If so you would re-think this statement since you saw fit to quote me

Im the biggest fan of the engine..but it has its limitations and yes it is NOT a track ready engine without serious cooling solutions.//
I track my leased 2010 BMW 335i w/ the N54 motor> My oil temps have never exceeded 250. This is tracking at 100 degrees in the SoCal deserts. 18-19 psi of boost, meth, dps and dci. Pulled on a 669 HP tuned CLS and a 580 HP M6 on the back straights of Big Willow. I have an LSD, coils and tires. ZERO other mods.

Lease is coming due and I would have purchased a 1M had they been available (would have gone with the Vishnu single turbo @ near 700 HP for $6,750!!) but no luck so I went with the M3.
