323 performance: 170 hp | 170 tq
325 performance: 184 hp | 175 tq
323: 170hp 181tq
325: 184hp 175tq
engines are actually different but same displacement.
i believe exhaust system and drivetrain are a bit different [/b][/quote]
the engines arent terribly different. the 2.5L M54 didnt get all the improvements the 3L got, and still uses the 323's camshafts. however the 325 did get modified piston skirts and rings, slightly bigger diameter intake and exhaust manifolds, and a non-return fuel rail system.
here's a dyno comparison between the euro spec versions...
