My Ride: '99 328i E46
Can I drop a '03 330i engine in a '99 328i e46?

I know this is possible, but I was wondering if I have to buy or change any other parts? Or do I have to get a new ECU?

Any help would be appreciated, and I need a new engine overheated, and the engine bolt threads in the block have lost their threads.

see my comments here , seems everyone's being caught off guard by the fvcking BMW expansion tank breaking. I wonder if someone could claim the expansion tank's poor design is actually a design defect that causes the engine to overheat and pretty much warp itself apart. It worked with the subframe
