escape 3.0 v6

so i was thinkin to myself that it would be really cool if it were possible to put the new 240 hp v6 from an escape into a little focus. i was wonderin if there was someone out there with more mechanical ability and financial ability than i have that has tried it already or if its just flat out not possible.
thanx

idk about that particular motor, but there's been a handful of v6 conversions, and even at least 2-3 v8 conversions that i know of.

ok, so the 2.5L duratec out of a contour/cougar will work with some work. and the con/cougar guys like to swap that out for a 3.0 out of a taurus (pre 240hp version, the latest has VVT i believe). sooo in theory you probably could, but youd need to research the 2.5 into focus swap and make changes for the 3.0 version. check out newcougar.org for some research
