The maximum output of 240 horsepower is achieved at 5,000 rpm, 1,500 rpm lower than in the normally-aspirated 3.0-liter inline six. The peak torque of 260 lb-ft, comes on stream at just 1,250 rpm. Not only is that 30% more torque than the aforementioned inline-6, it also peaks 1,500 rpm earlier. The vigorous power comes on early and climbs steadily all the way to redline.

Hmm, it's close in HP and torque to a blown EJ20... but it peaks earlier at 5000 instead of EJ20's 6000 rpm or 6500 rpm. So, this is a good example of the benefit of using twin-scroll turbo.

EfficientDynamics is not really that efficient like they are saying. Subies EJ20 was already building engines with those performance numbers in the 1990s. It will use less gas because it has a lighter block than the 3.0 liter NA engine so it will have less to haul around, and it will use less gas at idle. Other than that, it's a gas hog when flooring it. :number1

Isnt bmw a pain in the ass to work on and tune? I mean doesnt everything take "bmw" special tools?
I had an e30. No special tools except for the engine check/oil change light reset tool. You just need metric tools like Japanese cars. Since the inline-6 engine is longitudinally-mounted, working on it was easier because there is more space in the engine bay. It is a tight area between the front of the engine and the radiator though.
