M57d30 with xdrive into a compact


I've decided to build myself a daily driver/ sleeper in the form of a e46 compact with the drivetrain from a 330xd:

Ideally I would like to find the 204bhp m57d30tu but as I am looking around for donorcars I have come across a 184bhp 330xd for good money and so after doing some research I wonder... Internally is the only thing different about the m57d30 and d30tu the piston arms? the bore is identical? so If I took the pistons and piston arms from a tu I would get the same stroke or is there a difference in valves etc?

I know turbo is different and intake etc but as far as internals are concerned?
