3l swap?

Hey FF, was wondering if anyone has done a 3l swap from a Taurus into a focus? And if so what needed to be switch over, ecu? And did you have to swap out a trans? I'm also guessing custom motor mounts?

Try searching for the "v6 mistake" I've met the current owner but don't know if/ where the build thread is.

It can be done but not easily or cheaply.
Start with a Contour MTX-preferably a CSVT.
The 3.0L is externally the same as a 2.5 in the Contours.
I will dig up some more info for you but here is how it started...
