Looking to swap out my m54b30 pre 2003 with later version

I have been trying to gather as much information as possible. I currently have a 2002 330ci with about 220k miles. I'm looking to installing an m54b30 from 2005 or so obliviously with less miles, My understanding or what I gathered from pictures of vorshlag is that the only difference is the exhaust manifold/head stud orientation is different as well as the coil pack design. Is there anything else that would needs to be changed or should I be aware before I buy a motor? Thanks much appreciated in advance.!
