Can a standard e30 booster be used in an M3?

As the thread title says, i am wondering if I can use a standard 325 brake booster in the M3. real OEM lists them as different part numbers, but I know the M/C are interchangeable.

Is there a differerence, and if so, does anyone know what it is?

Anyone know?
Images look like the vac ports are located in a different spot, but that's it.

It will definitely interchange and work. I can't say if there's any difference in size or not.

On non-M E30's I believe the early models have the booster vacuum port towards the engine and late models have the vacuum port towards the strut tower.

In my m3 the port is under the MC, and I my 92 cab it's on the passenger side of the mc?

If that's the only difference, that's good.
