Yep the Seta is getting very rare and there is definitely something to do with that engine to get better performance..
Yes the "i" head in there is not the best because of the single springs but a swap with a real i head and your in the game.
Also these Seta had a little higher red line but i would also go with the complete "i' harness and ECU for some more improvement and higher red line.

Also the 8.5 to 1 compression would be good for a turbo install...

Anyway it is a cheap way to get a 2.7i that has matched pistons to the i head.
And even if it is a Seta you can red line those engines to 7000rpm all day long...

So yes the Seta is getting very rare.

INTERESTING READ...

M20 engine tips:

The single mass M20 flywheel can be lightened significantly, though it is debatable whether going past 17 pounds is safe. Aluminum flywheels cost $500 or more and weigh a lot less. The dual mass flywheel found on later eta's actually has weights and springs inside and cannot be lightened.
Word has it that the 323i flywheel is the lightest of all if you can get one.

The 325i head flows much better than the 325e. The I cam is also much better. A nice upgrade for either engine is the 323 cam, which is, of course, found mostly in Europe. It has about ten degrees more duration than the 325i cam, though lift may be slightly lower.

A good start for an M20 is the "Super ETA" engine which only came in 1988 e30's. It combines the 325i head with the taller 2.7 block, longer 2.7 crank and 2.7 rods. Throw out the less desirable cam and throttle body for the 325i pieces and you're set. It may be easier to build your own "Super ETA" by using a common eta short block, the SETA's unique pistons and an I head. You can find the pistons for your buildup by posting a want ad at places like www.e30tech.com. You can also use the stock 2.7 pistons, but many seem to think it will cause very low compression. However, the reported 7.5 to 8.34:1 compression ratio is ideal for boost.

E30 325i owners debate whether building this 2.7 stroker is worth the hassle. You can also build a 2.8 stroker with a forged turbo disel m20 crank. The 2.7 crank is cast, but apparently it doesn't break. The M20 is a very tough engine.

Personally, I measured the chamber volume on both the I head and the E head and found little or no difference. The chambers are differently shaped, which is why I used the SETA pistons.

A euro 323i head has smaller ports than an I, but its still an upgrade for an ETA engine, as it raises compression significantly and may have better flow.

Shaving the M20 head for increased compression isnt recommended as they often crack along the water channels, though they can be welded there to prevent cracking. Aftermarket head gaskets (MLS style) are available to lower compression to a desired level, and are popular for boost applications.

Use the Metric Blue head bolts from http://www.mcmaster.com.
Part Number 91303A306 grade 12.9 bolts- $10.56 per pack of 5. This has become the defacto headbolt option for everyone at www.e30tech.com, including many who are turbocharging their cars.

325e exhaust manifolds look to flow a bit less than 325i manifolds. The output flange is also oriented a bit differently.

The 325i intake manifold is much larger than the 325e intake manifold. So is the 325i throttle body.

The 325i injectors and fuel pressure regulator flow more fuel than the 325e. For more flow many e30 owners seem to use easily available 19 lb ford injectors.

Later E30's ('88 on?) had better EFI computers that allow for re-programmed chips.

yea 85eta (Steve) is one of my best friends. Maybe he'll get it back one day if his wife lets him! haha
