97 engine drop

So my friend has had his 97 ///m3 for awhile and hes been looking around for some time now. and has been wanting to drop a newer m engine in it like an 05 or 06. and he was wondering if he could drop it in with out too much problem.

The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites'.
