Exclamation SPI to to a BETTER engine swap

I have a 01 SPI focus with 5 speed manual transmission. Recently the engine has been lacking power and I have a lot of vibration and knocking from the harmonic balancer. Anyway I think it's time for a new engine from the junk yard. They have a '01 SVT for $300. I know I'll have to change the transm. as well, but my question is what are the possible engine transmission combinations and which one would you recommend. I Absolutely preffer to keep my current trasmission and if not possible I'd like to stay with another model manual transmission. Also what other parts am I going to need? I've been trying to find a donor ztec car but I can't find anything with manual transmission. So I'll have to collect the parts one by one.
One more thing can I use a computer from a vehicle with an automatic transmission?

PLEASE HELP!

I've seen this thread and many others, but a lot of questions are still unanswered especially the last one. Some people have told me that I can use the same tranny with a zetec, some say I need a different transmission...
Thanks
