m52tu cylindar head vs m54

Hey guys, I am going to be switching the cylindar head on my m54 b25, I was wondering if the m52tu head is compatible with the m54 block and internials or not. The reason being I have found a m52tu head and before I try to put it on I want to make sure that it will work with the m54 or if I need to find a m54 head.

I doubt those are compatible. They are similar engines, but there is no way there weren't significant changes made to the head of the M54.

Between a 323 and 325, seems to be the same part to me.

323

325

328

I'd thought the 330 would be different; but appears not.

330

Wow, I would not have expected that they would be so similar.
