Full svt focus swap into an spi wagon

Hey guys so i recently purchased on 03 svt focus for dirt cheap , there is a lot of rot and rust on the body and it wont pass safety where i live. So i looked on kijiji or (craigslist) if your in the US and i found a wagon for $300 with a blown engine ended up paying $280 for the wagon , the wagon has the SPI motor so im assuming one of the valves dropped because i hear they are known for that. Other than that the wagon is in really good condition and the owner just wanted it out of his driveway...... Anyways im wondering on how hard this swap will be ? any suggestions or guidance will be greatly appreciated. Im swapping pretty much everything over , heated seats , dash etc. etc. Im also wondering if the current transmission will work thats in the wagon? the wagon is auto?. Otherwise i will just swap everything over. I plan on boosting it in the late future , we have a full intercooled supercharger kit that will eventually go on it. So another question would be the wiring harness for the engine and the dash , will i have to swap these over or will the harness thats in the WAGON fit with the svt engine? Any tips or suggestions greatly appreciated.

the swap shouldn't be a problem, engine and trans will bolt up, you will need the svt's wiring harness and ecm. since you are swapping the interior as well you should use the donor interior harness as well. you're going to have to swap the steering knuckles from the svt into the wagon, the wagon's drive shafts will not work with the svt's transmission.

So just a lil update , the svt parts car is pretty much stripped down to nothing . I have the dash out and all that's left is to label the wires on where they go , pull out the rear seat and all of the window motors and wiring. Then once everything is out I'm going to go crazy on the wagon and start ripping out the interior on that . I have since sold the svt front and rear bumpers and purchased an st170 front to go on it . Beyond excited to put that st170 front end on :)
