318i to 323i conversion question on ecu

Hi.. I'm changing my 318i to a 323i , I have a written off 323 & all the nessasary parts however will the 318i ecu run the 323 engine or will I have to swap the ecu accross? If I change the ecu will the central locking ect still work?
Any answers would be appreciated.

Immobilisation is handled by the EWS (manages paired keys) and central locking by the GM5 general module (control lock actuators), so this should still function. I would have thought that changing from a to a 6 cyl would require a different ecu but I have no experience in that area really.
