Here are some facts about the euro 3,2L engine for you...

321 bhp at 7400 rpm
350 Nm at 3250 rpm
compression is 11,3

0-100km/t (0-62mph) 5,5 sec.
Topspeed electronically limited to 250km/t. (Will do alot more
without the limiter )

AND... it has a 6-speed gearbox! (The us version has a 5-speed
i believe)

AND... The E36 M3 3,2L weighs 1515kg, the E30 weighs alot less
so an E30 with this engine is pretty fast..

Hehehe... the gear ratios are almost the same in the us spec and the euro spec. Both have a ratio of 1.00 at fifth gear, but the euro 6-speed also have a ratio of 0.83 at sixth..
