Question BMW E46 with S62 swap

Hey! Im new on this forum, and im not sure where to put this thread, but I guess it would fit here (?)

I have a BMW E46 estate that i would like to have a S62B50 (E39 M5) engine in my car. I have already removed the engine, transmission, suspension, drivetrain and the rest of the electronics in the car associated with the engine. And I have bought a M5 engine, transmission and the electrics that belong to the engine. I have also bought a M3 drivetrain and suspension. Do anybody have experience or knowledge about this S62 swap?

I have heard/read that the oil pan can be a problem, since the clearance from the oil pan to the hydraulic steering/steering rack/rack and pinion steering, is to small. So how do I solve this problem with the oil pan?

And do I use the rack and pinion steering/steering rack from the E46 or the steering box from the E39? Whats the best option?

Is it any problems that I will come over under this project? I take everyone's advice to help and appreciate every comments that could help me!

BTW: Im not from a country that speak or write English to a daily basis, so my English ain't so good, hope you guys can excuse me, thanks!
