530xi to 535i engine trans swap help

Hi all I have a I have been wanting a 535i wagon for a while I found a 2007 530xi manual wagon for very cheap and currently have an N54, gs6-53, coplete enginge and trans wiring harness and msd81 out of a 2009 535i what else would I need to swap the n54 gs6-53 into the 530? Will do xdelete and remove for diff and axles. My question is can I have the msd81 coded tho the 530 cas module and keep the 530 cas and frm to keep all body module coding? Will the 530 body harness connect to the msd81? Will the 530 manual driveshaft fit the gs6-53? I know the brakes and suspension are better on the 535 but would plan on upgrading the brakes and suspension anyway. And yes I know you can buy a 535i wagon but I can buy the 530 and do the swap myself if my parts will work and be in it less than $5k total.
