An interesting fact is that, BMW 135i will drop the 3.0 liter twin-turbo for the single twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six. Still, both engines are producing same amount of power- 306PS (224 kW) and 406Nm of torque (300 lb-ft). The reason is "better throttle response and even more fuel efficiency".
