At first, dont do the change.
The m20b25 engine is lighter and have bether response.
The transmission does not fit either.

but the swap is possible.

Get a transmission from e28 528-535.
Rebuild the axle from trans to diff.
It is a lot of job, but a nice engine

E28 rebuild project.

The goal is 500 whp... street legal.

the 6er engine is the M30
just google search it, it's already been done several hundred times and there are good FAQ/DIYs out there
