Exactly because the are alot of displacement. You have a high rev state of tune engine. It was close to the highest output for this size engine. 1.8l 16v VW engine only made 123hp and 139 TQ. There is not much you can do to the M42 as it was a factory hotrod when it came out.
It's not that it's a worthless engine, it's a great engine for it's application. Talk a few HPDS and learn to work with what you have or consider purchasing a 325iS if you want mor TQ.
