06 2.0 into 04 2.3 engine swap?

Hello Fanatics!

I have a 2004 Ford Focus wagon with a 2.3 engine. She has 321,000 hard miles and is showing signs that the end may be near. (Timing chain rattling, losing power, not shifting well, etc.)

I have a wrecked 2006 Focus wagon with a 2.0. Everyone I speak with about it is rather pessimistic about the engine/transmission swap, but I feel like they are just making uneducated guesses.

Does anyone here know what type of problems might arise if I attempt it? Wiring issues, computer compatibility, mounting, etc.?

I read on another thread that the reverse (2.3 in, 2.0 out) could be done easily because the only difference was "displacement is a little bigger".

2.0 to 2.3 swap

Saving my beloved 04, while getting this junk 06 out of my back yard would be great. What do ya think?
