Default M52 swap questions???

I know these are prob. Covered elsewhere but I'm just about to start an 328i 98 doner car with M52 swap into 95ti and would like to double check a couple things: -motor mounts from 328 go into the Ti? and do they just bolt right in? -have to shave PS bracket before droppin it in? -use Ti PS pump? -swap 328i front suspension and brakes? And will front the contrl arms,sway bar, tie rods all fit on Ti? -M50 engine harness plugs and works with Ti chassis harness? -OBD1 and OBD2 TCM auto trans comp's different plugs? -Oil pan will it fit? Should with 328i frnt end right? I'm sure there's more but I'd greatly appreeciate any help in clearing these up for me! Thanks

Literally, Unbolt the subframe, brake hoses, throttle cable, strut nuts, sway bar brackets, steering linkage, and exhaust, then slide it under the ti. Remove the p/s and coil pack brackets on the ti first.

That's exactly what I was hoping would work. Thanks! do the Ti and M50 harness work with the 413 red label DME just plug n play?
