The M104 is the only I would consider, Not worth it IMO to swap in a M103.
The Late M104 like I said 1993 on are ideal. And if you hunt around you can find a complete manual kit for about $1500.00
I would not even think about swapping in the M103, way too much work for the CIS engine for the payout again IMO.
If you decide to do this as I said I could write out a step by step, but for an M103 I wont waste my time.
The later M104is more powerful and fuel efficient. Even more so with a manual versus the autobox.
The M103 is a great engine in its own right, but as far as I'm concerned not worthy of going through the motions for a swap.
I'm pressed for time right now as I am restoring a 500sec convertible and also have my normal work, but it sounds like you have not made up your mind whch direction to go, which is ok, do more research.
