too many issues with this swap,, all the controls are fly-by-wire, the OBD2 system is a lot more complicated with sensors etc. i would never bother, its easier to do a E46 M3 engine than an E90

isnt the e90 3L engine the e46 ZHP 255hp engine? I think itd be useless..itd be cheaper and better to do a S52 OBDI conversion and i bet you could turbo for the price ofjust a ZHP engine.
