Hello everyone, first timer here.

I currently have a 2001 316i with ~300000kms which, albeit fun to drive, seems to me as lacking in power.
I am somewhat mechanically inclined but still inexperienced, so I looked online and found some mechanics who will swap an engine from a 320i for around 1400€ (found the m52b20tu and m54b22) and I was wondering, after doing the engine swap, what else I must/need/should do to the car to not have problems. Also, I assume the 320i and 316i chassis are the same and as such the engine should fit, or am I wrong?

Thank you for your attention
