BMW 335D conversion

So i have a short list of parts i would need for this conversion to go smoothly.

But i like to be difficult and get the most out of my time. So i am looking ot fit a 2013 or newer 335D engine into my Defender.

I need the following

P38 Bellhousing
P38 input shaft for R380
Harness adapter for BMW
Throttle pedal from Mini Diesel
Engine mounts from P38, supposedly

What else would i need?

I recently rebuilt my R380 and LT250 with all Aschroft parts, and oil coolers.

I read the TD5 Rad and intercooler will fit fine, and i need an oil cooler for the engine oil.

I will also purchase Hybrid cartridges for the turbos, so i may see the most gain from my upgrade.

Am i missing anything else?

Fuel pump in tank? Has the BMW engine the same? Or with the same power/pressure? The same with diesel filter. "Drobek" = The Small One - Discovery 2, "BlufĂ­nek" = The Blue Thing - Defender 130, and for me at least Ford Mondeo Smile

Wow, I would guess the wiring would be the biggest hurdle with this, I know how complex they can be, good luck and very interested in your project, they are a cracking engine.
