Parting out a 1.9l Z3?

Hey guys I have some quick questions for you.

I'm thinking of picking up a high mileage Z3 (250k) to turn into a project car.

-- It has the 1.9l M44, 5 speed manual trans, and from what I can find online most likely a 4.44 rear diff. My question is, how much do you think I could realistically get for the motor and diff?

If I get the car, I'd be looking to swap in a turbo M50, probably a 3.23 rear LSD, and some other goodies to make it a fun DD/weekend track toy

Also, do any of you know if I would run into any fitment issues swapping in a 6cyl motor into the z3 body? The 6cyl swaps are incredibly common and easy in the e36 body style, but there's not too much info on the z3 swaps online..

Thanks much!
