E36 gearbox in E46?

Is it possible to fit an E36 gearbox into and E46? I have been trying to find an answer but can't seem to get any info.

Mines the early E46 so its got the M43 which is similar to E36 M43? and gearbox model numbers are same but part number is different.

I did speak to someone and he says "Even though they are both dual pan the plugs at the rear of the transmissions are not compatible" - I have sent him an email about modifying the plug but he hasn't got back to me yet.

Can someone give me some information about this? or if someone on here has done it. Can the plug be modified from an E36?
