Euro M3 got 343Hp out of the same 3.2L also at 8k.

differences are redlines, block and cams. It is a different engine to say the least.

its not a engine that one would want to put in a mass produced sedan.
I'm confused. Why not? The e46 M3 is mass produced. If the e90 M3 will have an entirely new engine with more HP, why not use the previous M3 motor in an e90 sedan?
