First the M3 engine loses 5hp to emissions, then the M Roadster engine loses an additional 18hp?

I guess this could be due to a more-restrictive exhaust. The new engine has a slightly larger displacement and is much higher-revving, so it should produce more exhaust gas than the old 321hp Euro engine.
