Very possible, surprised nobody mentioned it. The problems you're going to run into will require you to purchase a wrecked vehicle to have everything you need. The fuel lines are different although the fuel delivery system is based on the same idea. The PCM is different, and so is the powertrain wiring harness. I'm not even sure if the pin-outs are the same between the PCM's gauge section, so more research will be needed.

Both the engine and transmission will have to be replaced with the Duratec version. Fortunately, the mounts are the same. You'll also want the upgraded brakes from an 05 vehicle if you find your engine in one of those models.

It would be a long project, but I'm sure it's doable if you can find a rear ended Focus with the Duratec engine you want.
