Escape V6 to Focus AT?

The Escape uses the same 4 banger as the Zx's. Will the V6 swap with minimal work?

you would probably need custom brackets it would be easier to do a full swap of enigne trans gauges and ecm then it would just be a matter of fitting it in and getting custom axles

the contour engines have fit and the escape/ newer engines should be roughly the same size

It can be done but it isn't that simple. Do a search for contour v-6 swaps on this forum there should be several project logs it would be a similar process.
