M54 ZHP motor/trans into '99 323i

I've got a '99 323i 5spd and a buddy has a 2004 330 ZHP that he's pulling the motor/trans from. I had no intention of doing a motor swap but if I can get the motor locally cheap (and the 6spd trans) I might as well consider it. But what is involved in this?

He planned on keeping the DME for the project he's working on so I'd be short that. I would get the wiring harness and the complete engine, trans, & driveshaft, just would be missing the DME. I have a 3.38 diff already (though it's just an open diff for now).

So what is involved? I'll need a DME I presume...what about instrument cluster?

Thanks for any help. Cheers.
