Basically the same as the MINI engine and that puts out 207hp in John Cooper Works trim. BMW just made adjustments to turn the engine from transverse to longitudinal and changed the software to fit the "needs" of BMW drivers.
Also- that 1.6l block is the same as what BMW Motorsport works with for its S2000 FIA offerings (WTCC, WRC, etc.) it is capable of over 400hp with extensive tuning.
This fall it will begin its transition out as the 3 cylinder N37 begins to enter the scene.
