Closer to 168 Hp/167 lbs-torque. I feel your pain man. I couldn't find these figures anywhere, but there are some good sites with the specs of our car. I'll posts some links later for ya man.

no. e30's have M20's with 168hp, e36's 92-95 have M50's with 189hp, 96-00 M52's (2.5L 323) have 170hp, and 2001-on have M54's with 184hp

hrmm thats odd i never knew that, why would they go down to 170 on the 323? Im assuming they lowered compression so you can use regular gas, but i thought you could use regular on all 325s of any series...

compression was still a high 10.5:1, but more restrictive exhaust and intake manifolds, among other things, took away the top end that the M50's had, but it gave the M52's a lot of midrange and an improvement in tq
