any engine swap options for 4.4

i keep seeing engine swaps for 3.0 X5's
what about 4.4 any direct or near direct swap options out there

just curious... i grabbed a water cooled alternator/generator from a 740il that was a direct fit
got it for 35 bucks too...
and a water pipe from the rear of the same type of car... is that the engine swap option for a 4.4 X5

thanks...crowz
i grabbed the transfer pipe as i got the rear water pipe as well... it had M62 stamped on it
someone had removed the intake and exposed the pipes in great shape
all this happened over a year and a half ago so i'm kinda vague on the details now

so after finding this to be the case a search brought up this fact
E65 and E66 difference is in the length of the car - roughly 10 in longer, all in rear seating area.
E65 usually designated by 745i or 750i, E66 is 745Li or 750Li

i'll be visiting the
7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008) forums more often now...

as i look further...
it appears the E38 is a closer match...
so maybe i need to be checking the 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001) forums...?
kinda confusing...
i just remember seeing the water cooled alternator and going from there...
