M54 in a E46 M3 swap question

Hey guys

Long story short no S54's available in the country so thought of swapped a 3.0 M54 for a while

How hard is it?
Is it doable?

The car is manual btw

Engine swaps ain`t what they used to be....even though the basic engine architecture is similar, everything else is different. As in EVERYTHING....the mechanical stuff is the easier part to overcome. It`s all the electronics, control systems, etc. that makes the swap difficult & expensive. Know-how, money, and time can solve most issues, just be ready to invest a bunch of all three....
Good luck !
