My Ride: 2001 325CI Coupe
Lightbulb Engine swap - 330 into 325 - confimation

Hi All,

Im sorry to ask as there has been so many engine swap threads in the past, Lots of talk but nobody seems to have 100% compleated. the ones that have i have emailed but to no avail.

I am really just looking for some confirmation as I have read so many threads in regards to engine swaps etc....

I currently have a 2001 E46 325CI coupe with a warped head

I love my car and have spent so much money on it im not going give it up SO....

I have just purchased a - 2000 E46 330 saloon as a donor car to remove the engine

I have a top mechanic in place ready to do the work at a price im happy with.

What im really trying to ask are there any main complications i am going to come up against?

There are both M54B 325/330 engines and i believe the ECUs are identical both being MS43, both are 5 speed manual

Should i be worried? Please some one set my mind at ease......
