You're not going to see any real difference in acceleration for a 330Cic vs. a ZHP vert (both manual) as I doubt that 10HP is going to be noticeable and they both have the 3.07 diff.

You'll have to take a closer look before proceeding. The e46 323 had the M52TU motor which is much close to the M54 than the M52. Depending on the year of the e39 528, it may be an M52 or M52TU. ...
