Only the outer casing is magnesium , the inner is all alu.. Anyway, what makes you think that weakens the engine? You should google '2000 hp 4g63t' and see what theyr'e being made out of
The n52 is definitely capable of producing plenty of power, it's just more effort compared to the n54
I mean, in the uk theres at least 1 guy with a race prepped 130i, stock internals, just a custom ecu, new intake with itb's, new camshaft, and not even a full new exhaust, making 335hp.. That's not even going anything too crazy, not putting in the 3.2 stroker, no supercharger!
Im hoping more comes out in the next few years
Hey now, don't confuse him NYC6 the facts. He's having a hard enough time keeping up as it is.
