Engine blew, M3 swap question

Hey guys i just took cyliner head of my M50 and guess what, valve on cyl #6 broke and went right thru piston.
Head is no good too so i am thinking of swaping M3 in.
SO i found 95 M3 engine but its just engine and cylinder head no accessories. What could i use from my blown engine for swap (intake maniforld, ECU, wirring,TB, sensors ????)
Thanks
Jake

everything on your motor can be used with the 95 M3 motor..so whatever your missing from the M3..bolt on the 325 stuff..it MIGHT make u loose HP but that can all be swapped after

good luck!

buy 96+ models, they have stronger valve springs and keepers.

my 93 320i has 245000 on it and still runs strong, no concerns here. I'm sure this guy had to do something to blow his motor

NO NO NO!!
some mistakes in the posts, 150 ish km, on a 6cyl. is NOT common to blow on a BMW!!
I've had 2 bmw's both around the 250km mark, and both ran/run AMAZING!!
Also, strongest springs and all that i believe are off a 92 NON VANOS 325, because those had DUAL SPRINGS for the valves, and therefore made them REV HAPPY (with the help of a chip!)
