      FOX body 5.0 had 225hp (though 1993 i see some say 205hp I remember hearing about them getting detuned but i dont remember 100%)

      Change in SAE rating system in the early '90s- that 225hp number and the later 205hp number are the same engine, tested with different standards.

      This was my old 2016 340i. I turned it in a year ago at end of lease and didn't renew another BMW lease.



      First B58s out in the wild.

      That doesn't fit the criteria of this thread though.

      IIRC they [surprisingly] actually went up in demand briefly--335i was the first modern turbo BMW, and there was a lot of "whatever it's fast but BMW's need to be N/A" at the time. Until the E9x M3 came out a year later, the discontinued 330i was peak N/A horsepower for E90.

      I recall having an Ecotec-equipped Cavalier as a rental car, and the engine was the only good thing about it. Previous Cavaliers (with the pushrod engine) were rubbish in every possible way.

      Sort of

      The 86-92 engines had forged pistons. 86 had it's own cylinder heads and then 87-95 were the same heads. The 93-95 engines had hypereutectic pistons.

      Wasn't that one of the more reliable BMW's? I wish I would have picked one up when I sold my E46 330i
