Thumbs up E36 323is build

ok, so I've been around euros bmws for a while and need so solid clarification on specs/engine/mods/performance and what not. have a 323 m52tu in my e36. want to put a m54 crank into it. was told its a stroke mod using the m54 rods and crank with the m52 pistons (to keep the 10.5:1) ratio. please confirm or explain otherwise.

thanks in advance

"Cheap S50 would be M50 engine with M54B30 rotating assembly plus S50/S52 camshafts and you got yourself a 3.0L beast. All parts fit just fine, no machining required. "

given the expense of this, why not just put an S54 in it ?
