SVT swap into 05 ZX3?

Has anyone ever swapped an SVT motor and Tranny into a Focus that originally had a 2.0 Duratec? If so what all is needed Other than the obvious Motor, tranny, ECU?

wiring harness and most likely the body harness too and maybe the GEM modules...

but why switch from a motor with a superior design?

I'm just tossing the idea around i for sure want to go turbo with either one. The Xios Kit for the SVT motor is putting out some impressive numbers. Has anyone ever done the swap? And if i dont do that i would probably opt for Swapping in a 2.3 Duratec. Where is a good place to look for Used motors?
