Swap M52 to S54

Hello There'

I'm planing to swap my engine in my E46ci 323

currently I have the M52 engine

and I wanted to install the S54 (M3)

My main concern is that, mostly all the S54 in Ebay are just engine, trans, and harness, not any module upon request

my main question is: should I need all the S54 modules? (airbag, traction control, ABS, A/C, electrical, etc, etc)

or can I use my existing modules from the M52 and use the S54 engine?

any guidelines should be perfect at this point

Im planing to buy a MegaSkirt ECU

throttle body on your 323 is not the same.
