00:13hi guys
00:14today i would like to briefly compare
00:16two bmw m performance engines the
00:19venerable n55 and the superb b58 and
00:23clarify how similar and how different
00:25they are to each other the n55 was
00:27introduced in 2009 and was in production
00:30for around 10 years
00:32consequently it was found in almost
00:34every bmw series in various power
00:37the b-58 was introduced in 2016 and is
00:41the successor to the n55 engine it is
00:44similarly found in almost all the bmw
00:46series cars
00:47please watch my b58 vs b58tu video for a
00:51rough list of the cars that feature the
00:53b58 the n55 and b58 have some
00:57similarities both are three liter
00:59straight six engines developed by bmw
01:02both have won various awards
01:04both have three distinct technical
01:06versions in the case of the n55 this is
01:08the n55 b30 m0 the n55b300
01:13and the
01:15n55b30t0 and in the case of the b58 this
01:18is the b58b30 m0 the b58b30 m1 and the
01:24b58b301 hence both engine types have
01:26versions with power outputs between 300
01:29horsepower and 400 horsepower
01:32both feature a combination of exhaust
01:34turbocharger valvetronic and direct fuel
01:37injection making both engines tbdi
01:39engines tvdi stands for turbo
01:42valvetronic direct injection
01:44both feature a single twin scroll
01:46turbocharger installed on the right hand
01:48side of the engine
01:49both feature a single close to engine
01:52catalytic converter both feature similar
01:55lightweight camshafts both feature four
01:57valves per cylinder so the two engines
01:59are broadly similar under the bonnet
02:02they are visually different whilst both
02:04engines are installed longitudinally
02:06with the hot turbocharger fitted to the
02:08right hand side after looking forward
02:10the n55s intake and muffler box are on
02:13the left hand side away from the
02:14turbocharger whereas the b58 intake and
02:17muffler box are on the right hand side
02:19near to the turbocharger in contrast the
02:22coolant expansion tank is on the right
02:24hand side of the n55 on the same side as
02:26the turbocharger whereas the coolant
02:28expansion tanks are on the left hand
02:30side of the b58 engine bay away from the
02:33turbo in what could be characterized as
02:35the cooler side of the engine bay we'll
02:37return to coolant differences later in
02:39the video a prominent component when
02:40looking at an n55 engine bay is the oil
02:43filter assembly at the front the oil
02:45filter assembly is in a completely new
02:47location on the b58 please watch my b-58
02:50under the bonnet guide video for details
02:52of its location it's clear that the b-58
02:55design takes into account the
02:56reliability issues of the n55 which is
02:59likely why this oil filter assembly has
03:01been relocated on the b-58 due to the
03:04known issue of oil leaking on the n55
03:06serpentine belt just to mention briefly
03:08a prominent component when looking at a
03:10b-58 which is the intake resonator this
03:13resonator is even larger in the b-58 tu
03:16appearing almost as a second air filter
03:19box note that in the case of both
03:21engines the layout in the engine bay can
03:23vary in the case of the b58 there are
03:25the first generation b-58 and the second
03:27generation b-58 also known as the b-58
03:30tu in the case of the n55 there are
03:33different intake and muffler box
03:34configurations but i'll be using
03:36examples from the m2 for illustration so
03:39as mentioned previously each engine type
03:41has three distinct technical versions
03:43but for simplicity in this video we'll
03:45compare two from each so we'll include
03:47the original entry into service versions
03:49and the highest power versions let's
03:51have a quick look at the engine
03:53designations please watch my s58 vs b58
03:56video for a comprehensive description of
03:58what each letter in the designations
04:00mean this video will cover the
04:01designations briefly i will skip the
04:04first letter and return to it in a
04:05moment the second letter five means it
04:08is a six cylinder inline engine the
04:11third letter five in the case of the n55
04:14means combination of exhaust
04:16turbocharger valvetronic and direct fuel
04:18injection and eight in the case of the
04:21b58 means tvti engine however the
04:24combination of exhaust turbocharger
04:26valvetronic and direct fuel injection is
04:29also known as turbo valvetronic direct
04:31injection tbdi so this means both the
04:33n55 and b58 are tvdi engines in other
04:38words if the n55 were launched today it
04:40would also most likely be designated n58
04:43based on bmw's current naming convention
04:46so going back to the first letter both n
04:49and b mean the developers bmw but the
04:52letter has changed to demonstrate a move
04:54towards a modular engine design it is a
04:57way to signify that the b generation
04:59engines are in a different class
05:00compared to the end generation engines
05:03even if they share similar concepts such
05:05as the tvdi configuration the fourth
05:08letter b
05:09means a petrol engine with longitudinal
05:11installation the next two numbers are
05:13the engine displacement in both cases
05:16they are 3.0 liter engines
05:18the next letter is the performance class
05:20where m means medium o means upper and t
05:24means top
05:25the last number is the redesign relevant
05:28to approval where zero means a new
05:30design and numbers one and higher mean
05:32revision numbers
05:34finally the main part of the video is to
05:36look at the differences between the two
05:39the n55 was designed to comply with the
05:41euro 5 standard emission regulations
05:43whereas the b-58 was designed to comply
05:46with euro 6 standard emission
05:49the n55 power output starts from 306
05:52horsepower or 400 newton meters of
05:55torque whereas the lowest power version
05:57of the first generation b-58 produces
05:59320 horsepower or 450 newton meters of
06:03torque the highest power version of the
06:05n55 the n55 p30 t0 found in the original
06:09m2 is capable of 370 horsepower or 465
06:13newton meters of torque whereas the
06:15highest power version of the b58 the
06:20found in the current x3 and x4 m40i
06:23m3 m440i and z4 m40i and now in the g42
06:29m240i is capable of 382 horsepower or
06:33500 newton meters of torque
06:35the engine block of the n55 is an open
06:37deck design whereas the b58 is a closed
06:40deck design the open deck design results
06:42in improved cooling but can handle lower
06:46the closed deck engine block of the b-58
06:48which is shared with the b-57 can handle
06:51higher pressure such as those found in
06:52its diesel engine counterpart but
06:54cooling is more restricted
06:57consequently the b-58 features a more
06:59heavy-duty cooling system including a
07:01heat management module and the b58 tu
07:04also features split cooling please watch
07:07my b58 vs b58 tu video for details on
07:10the split cooling system
07:12importantly the b58 engine features a
07:15more heavy duty liquid cooled
07:16intercooler whereas the n55 has an
07:19air-cooled intercooler therefore the
07:21b-58 features a second coolant expansion
07:24tank and an additional electric coolant
07:26pump the n55 drives the engine coolant
07:28by an electrical coolant pump but the
07:30b-58 features a mechanical or engine
07:33driven coolant pump the n55's electrical
07:35coolant pump continues to operate after
07:38engine shutdown but the b-58 engine has
07:40an additional dedicated electric motor
07:42which continues to circulate coolant to
07:44the turbocharger after engine shutdown
07:47compared to the n55 the b58 exhaust
07:49turbocharger has a six percent larger
07:52turbine 10 larger compressor and is
07:55therefore able to produce 20 percent
07:56more boost please watch my dedicated
07:59b-58 turbocharger video for more details
08:02the fuel preparation pressure can reach
08:04200 bar for the n55 and the first
08:06generation b-58 but this has increased
08:09to 350 bar for the b58 tu the fuel
08:13injectors are solenoid type in both
08:14engines but although the first
08:16generation b58 features the same he dv
08:195.2 standard as found on the n55 the
08:23b58tu features he dv6 standard the n55
08:28features third generation vanos system
08:30versus fourth generation found in the
08:32b58 the n55 features a bed plate below
08:35the engine block but this is not
08:37installed on the b58 the b58 features
08:40forged steel crankshaft which is
08:42superior and more robust to the n55s
08:45cast iron crankshaft the b-58 features
08:48toughened internals such as bearings
08:50connecting rods and others in order to
08:52cope with start stop operation whereas
08:54such protection was not taken into
08:56account during the design of the n55
08:59the cylinders are protected with iron
09:01cylinder sleeves in the case of the n55
09:04but the cylinder wall protection is more
09:06advanced in the case of the b-58 using
09:08electric arc wiring spray lts
09:12the n55 features a power steering pump
09:15but the b-58 does not have a power
09:17steering pump
09:18a gas particulate filter system was
09:21introduced in 2018 on the b-58 something
09:24which is not implemented on the n55
09:27the highest power n55 does feature a
09:29dedicated oil cooler radiator which is
09:32not found on the highest power b-58
09:35engine displacement is the measure of
09:37the cylinder volume swept by all the
09:39pistons in the case of the n55 the
09:42displacement is 2979
09:45cubic centimeters whereas the b-58 has a
09:48displacement of 299
09:50cubic centimeters
09:52in a piston engine the cylinder bore is
09:54the diameter of each cylinder
09:56stroke length is the distance traveled
09:59by the piston during each cycle four
10:01stroke ratio or stroke bore ratio is a
10:03term to describe the ratio between the
10:06cylinder bore diameter and the piston
10:08stroke length in the case of the n55 the
10:11bore hole is 84 millimeters and the
10:13stroke length is 89.6 millimeters
10:16whereas in the case of the b-58 the
10:18borehole is 82 millimeters and the
10:21stroke length is 94.6 millimeters
10:24consequently the borehole to stroke
10:26ratio for the two engines is 0.94 for
10:29the n55 and 0.87 for the b-58
10:34in a combustion engine the compression
10:36ratio is calculated based on the
10:38relative volumes of the cylinder when
10:40the piston is at the bottom of its
10:41stroke and the volume of the cylinder
10:43when the piston is at the top of its
10:44stroke the compression ratio of the n55
10:47is 10.2 to 1 compared to the b58 11 to
10:52the dme of the n55 is model mevd 17.2
10:57and the b58 is a more advanced 8th
11:00generation ecu model dme 8.6
11:04the n55 features a single part timing
11:07chain that is at the front of the engine
11:09the engine's weight is therefore front
11:11biased in the case of the b-58 the
11:13timing chain is at the back of the
11:15engine so the engine weight distribution
11:17is more balanced it should be noted that
11:20the first generation b-58 has a two-part
11:22timing chain whereas the latest b-58 tu
11:25has a return to a single timing chain
11:28this is just a quick comparison between
11:30the two engines and there are obviously
11:31a myriad of other differences and
11:33similarities between them through a
11:35modular design concept the b58 features
11:38more commonality with other bmw engine
11:40types eg the b-57 diesel engine and is
11:43able to produce and cope with more power
11:46and has lower emissions than the n55
11:48from around 200 grams per kilometer on
11:51the n55 to roughly 175 grams per
11:54kilometer which represents 12.5 percent
11:58the b-58 does not seem to suffer from
12:00the carbon buildup issue which affected
12:02the n55 and its design has addressed the
12:05n55s crank hub central bolt failure mode
12:09all this makes the b58 truly a different
12:11class engine compared to the n55
12:14that's it guys i hope you enjoyed this
12:16quick video and i hope it was
12:18interesting let me know in the comments
