Cool 300CE 24V engine swap

may be this was answered somewhere, but I wanted to replace my 300CE 24V 1990 engine with a 320E engine.
my questions:-
1- are there any much diff in the performance HP and Speed?.
2- will I need to change anything else beside the gear box from 4 speed to 5 speed?.
3-any other engine type that would fit with the 300CE 24V?.

If you are going all out like that, you might want to find a c36 that was wrecked without damaging the engine, and swap in that engine and tranny to your car. It would be the ultimate CE besides one with a 500e motor and tranny and all.

The c36 engine is based on the same block as the 3.2 litre m104 engine.

HP ratings for the 3.2 and the 3.0 I believe are 217, but torque is better ont he 3.2 if I am correct.
