    There will be 2 ECUs, one for the gearbox and one for the engine.
    It should work fine having a 6 cylinder powering the gearbox, but if you get odd gearchanges, you may need to change it from rpm differences.

    I have a feeling it sends the data over the CANbus rather than just pulses from the revs.

    318i/is '96-'98 m44 and the 328i/is '96-'98 m52 both use autobox A4S 270R

    318i/is 92-95 m42 uses A4S 310R

    ratios on both boxes are the same

    not sure if you have a m42 or a m44, but you should be able to use your existing gearbox with the six mate.

    info taken from bently manual
