Last 325 sold in the US (MY 06, E90) had the same 3 liter engine as the 330 (also MY 06, E90) and 328 (07-11) - N52B30. Only difference was intake manifold + engine mgmt, with a 40 hp range between the 3.

It's possible to fit that 30i manifold (also on the X3 30si) to any other N52 and use a tune to make it work and up the power to the 330i numbers.

European market is a bit better, only 2/6 models don't match their capacity. (E90)
