Anybody local swapped an s54 into an e36 chassis?

The s54 engine is the obd 2 3.2 liter 333hp Inline six that comes in the e46 M3's for those just reading this randomly.. The obd 1 1994 e36 325is only has a 2.5 liter engine making ~190hp~
I know the new engine and tranny bolt in using all stock bmw mounts, and I'm sure I can handle all that stuff, but the wiring/emissions of the new motor seems misleading... because everybody has a different method to getting it to work. There is no general agrement on which method is best... a stand alone, or a chipped obd1 ecu.
Any info would be appreciated.

i know most swaps use chipped ecus like the Miller war chips, but i dont know how well theyd do at this altitude. I know you can OBDI a S52, but i didnt think the s54 could run that way since it needs the faster computer.
If you know about electronics you can use a Megasquirt, they are super customizable. you can use basically any sensor you want as long as you configure it in software. could use a GM temp sensor, a e36 cam angle sensor, anything really. good for rare swaps where you wont have a premade harness available. Full control over timing and spark. But you have to be REALLY good with a multimeter lol. Much cheaper than other standalones, like haltech.
