E46 M3 6 Speed Install in E36

I was just wondering if anyone has installed a E46 M3 6 speed transmission in there E36?, and if so how much work it is to install. I have a Euro 6 speed E36 M3 tranny in the car now but it is finished and can't find one due to the fact that they are hard to come across. so I was thinking of a E46 M3 tranny BC they are alot more common. Any help would be appreacted.

I'm in the process of doing this right now. If you currently have a euro 6-speed then you'll have everything you need, less the actual transmission.

So it would pretty much be a direct swap between the two.

If using the E46 M3 Transmission, the E46 M3 clutch and flywheel MUST be used for it to fit. I believe the E36 M3 6 speed keeps the same E36 clutch/flywheel.

E46 M3 Flywheel/clutch
E36 325i Slave cyl (to have the best pedal feel and engagement)
