No offense, but why are you all so excited to have 3-stage intake manifolds? There's more to the high-output N52 than the intake manifold (not least of all the different ECU) and the N51 has a lower compression ratio besides. If anything, the N51 makes less power than the regular N52, but BMW publishes only one set of engine specs so as not to confuse consumers.
