Swapping Engine In a 2001 Focus

How hard is it to swap in an engine into a 2001 Ford Focus SE? I've been doing some research and it seems pretty straight forward. I've helped with swaps on Honda Civics and did the tranny on my own civic so I have some experience with this kinda stuff. How hard is it on a Focus and what kind of problems should I expect to run into? Or should I just dish out the dough and have a mechanic do it? Also if anyone has a good guide with pix would appreciate it. It's the Dual CAM engine BTW.

We have a whole new Engine and Transmission swap forum for discussions just like this

There are 2 DOHC engines for the Focus. Intake on the motor's right side= Duratec, left side= Zetec. This will make a difference as to which transmission will work. Unlike Hondas, Ford uses different bell housings between their motors. Something I've always thought was illogical for a manufacturer especially if the insides are the same.
Be eclectic.

Moderating everything now, let me know if I can help.
