2.3L Duratec into 03 zx5

Is there a howto somewhere on this?

I am going to assume the following would be needed:
1) 2.3L Duratec Engine with harness
2) Transmission, clutch, flywheel
3) Axles? (would the ones from the 03 work?)
4) ECU and Dash
5) Different fuse box?
6) Intake/Exhaust manifolds
7) new cat, flex, muffler, exhaust?

Also, is the 2.3L Duratec the PZEV? And, would I be better off with the 2.0L Duratec?

I am assuming the engine mounts and intake would be different...

Comments? Corrections? Confirmations? Anything would be nice.

2003...My guess is a zetec in florda, not close enough to get a '03 duratec from a green state. But, you never know.

It is a 2003 Zetec. I am currently exploring this conversion for a much later date upgrade (say in 40k miles).
