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...

N54 might never reach the status the 2JZ has gained over the years, but with the single turbo N54s being built, we shall see!
