Default Why no 50 series?

So I've been reading and talked with old school sum and I can't help but wonder why no 50 series swaps? It's a 4 cylinder version of the 60 uses many same parts and goes upto 350 hp

I wondered the same thing but not sure it would have enough torque to push a Bird...
Maybe in an FC?

the 50 series is one big engine,way too tall to put in an FC.
My opinion of course.
Its electronic too.and heavy,too much for an FC,IMO.
I know where theres a dozen of them,if you want one!
