Like? The 24v swap thread covers everything but the S54 electronics and that is covered well in other places

After watching this if you have both engines in your possession how could you even consider the s50? I would sell the s50 to fund the s54 swap, problem solved.

Driven S50,s52,s38 and s54 The S54 is by far better. I don't even care too much for the s50.

A mapped s54 on a standalone with double vanos gives you similar power to a s52 stage 1.5 supercharger or stage 1 turbo s52 power but with no blower/turbo. Obviously the boosted platforms would have boosted torque delivery (and boosted issues).

Also the high rpm sheer velocity is a fun kick; Similar to a built turbo motor with high cams.
