I plan on doing an M50 swap in the future but my exhaust needs attention now. To those of you with M50/S50 swaps, can you run the E30 325i pipes from the exhaust manifold to the muffler or is a custom set-up needed?

You need a totaly new custom exhaust made up. You could use the stock M50 exhaust manifold (but even that has to be modified) or stainless steel header ($$$).

I went with the stainless steel Genie header ($1,200 CAD) with custom exhaust ($950 CAD).

Damn I have to clean that header!

$5000 for the engine and all the proper parts
$1500 install (could have been abit cheaper but had to fix the harness)
$950 for the exhaust (from the header back)
