Actually here's a fun fact about the nomenclanture of the M series engines, and why the numbers arent sequential as you'd expect.
While still in prototype phase as a planned obsolescence engine, Toyota Engineers described each iteration based on how many critical flaws in engine design there are.

4Mistakes
5Mistakes
6Mistakes
7Mistakes 

They later dropped the idea and went back to making reliable engines.

not just yet.

other things are higher up the cue (cough supercharger cough) and will get done first.

for now its just make it work reliably for the short term and engine swaps can happen down the track.

Given its M powered I'm sure any reliabilty will be short term only.
