So saw this today - was interesting that he noted with the S58 the oil supply when saying 'the B58 is basically an S58'. Probably old news but interesting nonetheless!

He said P58, not B58. P motors are a step above S motors.

I am assuming the P58 is an S58 with a dry sump like how the P63 in the previous M6 GT3 was basically an S63 with a dry sump.

Unrelated but the A90's styling would be greatly improved with a hood line that low

Gotcha, I thought he said p but couldn't find reference to that anywhere so thought he may just be talking about the range. Not super familiar with BMW engine format though seems like it's pretty straight forward.

"P" engines are BMW's race car engines. Usually just a further evolution of the M standard S motors
