BMW N55

The N55 is a turbocharged straight-6 automobile engine from BMW. It was launched in early 2009 in the new BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo in the BMW 535i GT model. It is BMW's first production single turbocharged gasoline engine that combines the use of Valvetronic, turbocharger technology and direct injection technology. Although the BMW TwinPower Turbo brand name is used for the engine, unlike the other engines that carry the name it uses a single turbocharger with twin scroll technology, taking in exhaust pulses from two groups of 3 cylinders. Valvetronic is used to help reduce throttle losses. Applications: 2010– BMW 535i GT ... from Wikipedia
