I doubt there is room for BMW to beef up n55 to 400hp. To maintain a manufacture approved engineering margin, achieving this power goal will require a bigger turbo, a stronger LPFP and HPFP. The intercooler needs to be upgraded as well. This n55 can end up being a S55 with twin scroll turbo.

Testing, making and managing these new parts should cost BMW more than just putting in a detuned twin turbo s55.

That being said, I wish BMW would upgrading n55 fueling and turbo for m2 CS, so we base m2 owner, and the whole n55 community, can take advantage and upgrade with OEM parts.
