Duratec swap

Is it worth to swap Zetec to Duratec? The reason is Duratec's availability of performance parts. Duratec have focussport turbo, which it looks very beast. How much difference in acceleration, power, and drivability in Duratec compared with Zetec?
Thanks

If you have the money to do the swap haha. For what you would spend in swapping in the Duratec engine and adding on the FS turbo, you could make the Zetec much faster. You got the powerworks kit, tom's kit, and i dont even know everyone who has a kit... for the Duratec we have like 2 options... FS turbo, or custom turbo. At least that's last I heard of anyway.

u would pretty much need everything to do it,,dash cluster,wiring harness,engine harness, engine mounts,engine and tranny, maybe fuel lines and all the sensors on the firewall, would have to relocate the battery, shift cables also probably,shifter if ures is a pre 2002.5 and u would probably need new axles also,,,engine computer and u would have to tie in ure harness cause of the dash harnesses being different
