2.0L SOHC to DOHC Swap, will it Work?!?!

I have a 2000 Ford Focus LX and the motor went bad in it. The current motor in it is the 2.0L SOHC and I can get my hands on a 2.0L DOHC out of a 2002 Ford Focus and was wondering if I could just swap out the single cam with the double overhead cam motor?? I read on an ebay auction for a 2.0L DOHC and it said it would work in replacing the SOHC in the 2000 LX but I wanted to check on here first to be sure before I got the DOHC I can get from a buddy. If ANYONE knows if it will work, Please let me know. Thanks!!

P.S.- I now know it can be done from reading more threads, what I want to know now is approx. how much does it cost for the stuff you need to do the SOHC to DOHC swap other than the motor, such as ECU wiring Harness and all brackets, mounts, and other items needed to make the swap? I can get a DOHC for $250, how much more is it going to cost to make the swap over the $250 I would pay for the used long block?? Thanks again!

First of all let me be the first to welcome you to Focus Fanatics!!!!!!!

Second. The search button is your best friend on here. people tend to get annoyed when you bring up issues that have already been discussed (like the SOHC to DOHC swap) but....i have to say you will have to swap out the transmission, wiring harness, ECU, etc. NOT just an engine swap but an everything else swap too.

You dont pay someone to have sex with ur wife and then brag about how good she was....so why have someone work on your car and brag about how fast it is?
