I heard that BMW's racing E30 M3 was putting out 370hp w/ no forced induction. (I know it was with the 2.5 liter but still...) How'd they do it?

when you get horsepower like that from a 2.5.. you must trade off drivability, (streetwise at least)
those engines made the power high in the rev range with a limited power band. you can wring more power out of your street engine but again usually at a cost of mid range torque. but hey for racing.. never enough horsepower!
