Smile zx2 trans swap to 2000 zx3

How hard would it be to swap in a zx2 trans into a zetec focus? I want know because something is going bad in my transmission and if I swap transmissions I want to have shorter gearing also. has anyone done this before? I've read the gearing before but I can't seem to remember what it was in the zx2. Would it be worth it? I remember reading something about different lengths in axles. Is there a transmission out there that has shorter gearing with a stock limited slip?

Just pick up another Focus MTX-75. They're very inexpensive.

I got some advise from Tom and am posting for the future searchers, Tom said that it isn't that hard to rebuild the trans and the zx2 trans was JUNK. I kinda already knew that the zx2 trans is junk but I want short gearing.
