Im new to the BMW game and was told when i purchased my 328i it had a motor swap from a 330ci. Sorry the title makes it seem like its the other way around. Is there anything I should be looking out for that could cause a problem or an easy way to tell if this is even true or not?

my car is a 1997. As for motor, the 330ci I was told it was an 03?? Sorry for the confusion again. Like I mentioned before I pretty much know nothing about BMWs so i might not make any sense. Im just going by what I was told.

I don't see any problems with it and wasn't sure if I should keep my eyes open for any. It seems pretty snappy with a stage 3 clutch. The only issue is that in NY where I live you can't have the check engine light on for the car to pass inspection.. Mine is on and its throwing 7 different codes which I can't figure out.. It passed fine last year I guess so im going to start pulling it apart and the air intake and working my way up to the Intake manifold cleaning and hoping it helps.

I have them written at home, im at work now. I believe they were, 2 involving fuel loops. 3 involving either low or no activity from o2 sensors. One was low coolant temp. and I can't remember the final. What is a lambda?

Thank you for being patient with me and helping out.
