Hopefully someone will push the limits. I, too, think it's odd that in 10 years, you never hear of anyone hitting a wall with this engine. There are just conservative SC kits. Hopefully with TT finally putting out a turbo kit, we'll have a good basis to see people use some beefy internals and see what it takes to kill the M54.

How much do you think it could reasonably make on built internals? (loaded question.. the crank and rods don't really need to be replaced, and the pistons only need to be replaced to lower compression)
