I have no clue...but my question would be...how would you install a double VANOS engine from a different generation...and what all would be required to make it work as well as fit? I would believe that injection system & cams would be lower down on the list.

Single VANOS M62TU engine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_M62





Double VANOS N62 engine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_N62

what year do you have
according to realoem
the e53 switched over from M to N sometime in 03

find ALL differences in the N62 E53 and go from there
i'm almost sure it has the 6 speed tranny but not absolute
but not certain that the 5 speed could't work

you may need the wiring and computer boxes.. engine and trans.
if the above is the case

whats wrong with going or staying with the M...
....unless you already have a N series on hand
