Can you make a straight swap between a 92 325is and a 99 M3 engine. I have found a 99 M3 engine with wiring harnes and computer. Is the rest of the drive trane ok in this swap. How about exhaust manifold? Any hiden problems??

According to KingScare, yes, you need a new tranny, and also, the completely drive train. The '99 M3 has a lot more horsepower, so you can damage all axes and the dif. In short, change those parts too, or don't swap the engine!
