as far as I know, no engines are really a direct swap.

You could attempt a 2.3 swap , but you could also upgrade what you have which im assuming is the 2.0 duratec , id go for a nice suspension setup , then get the basics like intake , exhaust , header and tune . Or go turbo!!! Check out fswerks , steeda , central Florida motorsports , and massive speed systems for some amazing parts for your vehicle
