At the end of the day I think the N54 is a better ALL AROUND engine (road course, daily driving, drag) and will be recognized as such in the upcoming years.

With that being said I think the S85 is the best engine ever made... If that was paired in an e90 M3? zomg...

2JZ is a great motor, probably one of the best in the 3.0L range. N54 has definitely proven its worth, but for Toyota to make such a reliable sequential twin turbo setup, attached to a strong bottom end, and sell to the consumer 20 years ago impresses me the most. N54 might never reach the status the 2JZ has gained over the years, but with the single turbo N54s being built, we shall see!
