2.5d engine swap

Does anybody have any experience with installing a 2.5l Duratec in a 2005-7 Focus. I am thinking about a 2009 Escape engine. It looks like it would bolt up to the Focus mounts and the accessories should fit OK. I know I would have to change intakes (23D probably) as the 2.5 is drive by wire.

The issue that would seem to be a real problem is that this engine is a VVT and I would have to use a fixed cam arrangement as my processor won't handle VVT.
