Interesting that you ask. My independent garage just installed an M30 from an E32 735i into a '90 535i that had suffered a cracked block. He indicated that the swap was direct with the exception of some obscure aspect of the throttle (which I don't remember). They just had to swap the throttle component for the original E34 unit to get it working.

If I were in your shoes, I'd go for it.

Good Luck
