all 325e's have the m20b27. 121BHP@4250 166TQ@3250
the 88 325e has the m20b27 "supereta" 127BHP@4250 166TQ@3250
all 325i's have the m20b25 171BHP@5800 160TQ@4300

Check this for anything else, most of it is acurate. http://www.r3vlimited.com/Tech/breakdown.htm

us spec 325i's had only 168hp, the euro ones had the higher compression 170-171hp ratings. i think 9.5/1 compression vs the us spec 9.0/1? i think but might be wrong.

8.8:1

168 and 171 are both numbers given by BMW. Both are accepted values. Either way its 3hp not a big deal.
