Even though the N54 had 2 turbochargers and the N55 has only one, the power output levels are identical and the latter can also be taken over 350 HP with ease. Steve Dinan, the founder of Dinan Motorsports even offered to make a movie explaining exactly how the engine's power output is increased.
Going for one of his company's upgrade kits will take your 3-liter 6-cylinder engine up to 375 HP and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque, almost 70 HP more than the stock version.
