An economy version called the 325e (the e stands for the Greek letter eta, signifying efficiency) was released as a lower revving, more fuel efficient engine. To maximise low-rev torque, the engine was the largest available in the chassis (aside from the rare South African version which was available with the 3.3 L M30). The 2.7 L had a longer stroke than the 2.5 L, with a more restrictive head, four cam bearings instead of seven (less internal friction), and softer valve springs. This resulted in 90 kW (122 PS; 121 hp) at 4250 rpm and, more importantly, 240 Nm (180 lbft) at 3250 rpm (peak torque for a 325i is 215 Nm (159 lbft) at 4000 rpm).

with that sort of low rpm torque it'd be perfect for auto-x I bet! actually these motors are pretty often built too I guess.
That's the motor that was in my buddy's dad's 325es right?

These are sweet and a great deal...

Also the ITBs FSWerks posted, I'm guessing for dura right? If those are for an SVT, coupled with a topspeed header, would make a pretty wild N/A SVT. If they are for Dura, I may consider if I keep this car...
