Yep, you'll need to buy these.

Use your M50's intake manifold, along with the rest of the intake system (except injectors). Use the exhaust from the S52.

You can use either valve cover, but you'll need to make an adapter for the crankcase vent if you use the S52 one.

Also, you'll need an S52 chip for your red label DME. You can get one from the big companies, such as Turner, or you can talk to an independent tuner.
