320 is a 2.0 litre hence the 20 at the end of the number.

The E36 320 engine looks exactly like the E36 325 and 328 engine.

It is not a detuned 325 motor. It has different internal components than the 325.

I remimber you or someone else asked what could they get for their car and numbers weren't pleasing at all considering the numbers invested.

I am selling the car, but not to vigerously. The car is just posted here and on bimmerforums. I am considering putting it on ebay, and will also be putting it in the local paper here in a week or two. I am in the middle of mid-term exams right now. I have had people offer almost what I want, and to tell you the truth, if they put the money infront of me, I would take it. so, I will probably sell the car soon.
On that note, I will be looking for (most likely) a couple of e30s to replace my car. I need to turn my one car, into 2.

well beside different oil cap location, different intake manifold, and different fuel rail cover they are pretty much the same.

Oh and Mystikal, I forgot to say that I was referring to the E36 320 and not the E46.
