Hello welcome to the forum I moved your thread to the engine swap section. This should help you get some better answers. There have been quite a few who have done the swap already. I don't remember everything they did but I know it was quite a bit.

well im in the process of doing the same swap except mine is an 02 and the doner Ztec is an 01. First youll want an 03-04 main engine wiring harness and ecu make sure its from the same engine tranny combo. Then youll need a passenger side motor mount off a zetc car. Also the coolant hoses are different coming off the firewall. check your throttle cable and make sure it hooks up to the new engine the same or youll need to get a ztec one too I had to. Also the high pressure line from the rack and pinion to the pump needed swapped out as the hook up point changed. Also the ecu will need to be reprogrammed for your key to work properly. Hope this helps just a few things i ran into so far on my swap.
