There was some extensive discussion about it in this thread.

Basically the 320i can't be brought up to the same figures as the 328i that easily as there are quite a few differences, i.e. compression ratio (11 vs. 10), different pistons, different backpipe (60,2mm vs. 75mm), software and maybe some other things people are not sure.

Normally tuning companies quote about 220-230 horsepowers and ~325Nm what can be achieved with the 320i (with external units).
