328 vs 320 N20 pistons

Note sure if these has been posted already, but Terry from BMS just posted these over at n54tech.

Hey guys,

For those interested we were able to obtain some photos of the 320 and 328 pistons. The 320 pistons are definitely a little higher CR but look just as beefy to me.

According to the BMWUSA.com website, compression is listed for 10:1 on the 320i. Is that incorrect?

I think so.(?) There ha been some discussions whether the n20 320i's pistons were 10:1 or 11:1. I guess that discussion is now over with that picture from BMS.

Isn't higher ratio provide higher potential for upgrading?

Not really... I am running +4 psi of boost safely with the bms. The 320i is 11:1. Higher compression engines are harder to tune. Thats one of the main reasons why our numbers will never match a 328i. Nor will the gas mileages.
