92 e36 m54bu25 swap

So I have a 92 e36 and just got a m54 which come with the pedal,dme plus its full wiring harness and I was just wondering what way to go about converting it to my shell I still have the stock 320i engine harness if that makes life easier for me.

I know I could buy the harness off someone who does them but honestly for almost the same price as my engines worth I feel its a bit over the top if I could do it myself over a few weeks.

Also yes i have someone to sort the dme out for me but any other tips would be handy thanks.

You easiest bet is to remove the stock 320i harness and retrofit the m54 harness in there. Many sensors will be different to start with and locations of accessories may be different between the 2 engines
