Default Engine Swap Transmission Question

Still in "consideration" phase....

A friend has a 98 328i automatic donor car available. If I were to consider swapping the M52 motor into my 99 ti would I have to locate a manual 328 transmission or will my existing transmission mate up to the M52 motor?

Correct, my 99 ti is a manual transmission. The 98 328 donor car is an auto.
