I am owner of BMW 320d e90 2005 sedan. My car's engine had to be replaced, so I found another car which has the same engine but is technically 318d.

Can you tell me if I can swap the engines without changing anything? Basically what I want to do it place the 318d engine (which should be exactly the same 2l 1995cm3 diesel engine) in the 320d place.

As I've done some research on other forums – people stated that it is basically just a detuned engine, so if we connect the 318d to 320d computer it should be same thing, or there might be other things to change?
