A displacement change? Very surprising if accurate. Changes I know off are all turbo related.
I'm not sure if the Q60 version is rated for e85 from the factory, but apparently from what I've seen the Z is. I wouldn't be surprised if that is the change if it doesn't require different heads and maybe even pistons.A displacement change? Very surprising if accurate.

I'll just say that some of the comments on that page give me a headache to even read. I'd be more interested in hearing from someone who has extensive knowledge of the VR30 as well as a true twin turbo BMW engine like the N54 or S55 to further understand what "pain to work on" for this engine means.Sorry if I'm going off topic, but the guys over on our sister forum said this motor was a pain to work on and that it takes a ton of $$$ to make power.
Yes, I can see that as the B58 has a single turbo which I'm assuming can be swapped out from the engine bay. Maybe the VR30 is a PITA to work on, but I wouldn't base it solely on having to swap turbos out from the bottom, when I'm sure many people will do the work on their new Z themselves and not once touch the turbos during ownership.You can make a ton of power very easily! If we’re talking 6, 7, or 800 horsepower then yea it may be more difficult than the b58.
Once we get past bolt ons and tuning.. aftermarket turbos are super easy to swap on the Supra compared to the Q60. At least that’s my understanding. So maybe that’s what they’re referring to?
