2.5 Swap

Thought Id start a little swap thread and hopefully have tips along the way. My 05 st had 189k on the clock and within a couple thousand miles went through 3quarts of oil very quickly. I did not catch it in time and it developed a tick and small knock. Decided to buy a 2.5 from a 2012 fusion with what I was told, 1,200 miles. Here is my list of parts Ive gathered so far

-2012 Fusion 2.5
-Cossie knock off intake-Port matched with 2.5 head with 1 piece gaskets
-Massive BS delete
-Massive VCT delete
-All the 2.3 parts that are necessary to swap to the 2.5-Will be using Tom's Tune
I will post some pics soon-Thanks for all who have helped so far

Old engine out along with the trans. New motor with oil pan off. Very very clean so it is definitely low miles.

A local guy has been porting heads and intakes pretty much his whole life so I took him my project. He was not too sure about the intake at first but here is some progress. He is all done now and ill take pics when i pick it up. Also massive said vct solenoids are different from 10-12. This is what mine had the 18mm earlier style.

Thanks for creating this thread. It's always helpful to see what others are doing with their swaps.

That intake manifold looks pretty awesome. Do you know who makes it?

So now it is port matched to fit the 2.5 head with a one piece gasket. He filled in the iac because he didnt think it was necessary so i had to drill a small for ir to get air.

Had the wrong size timing peg in the ford timing kit at shop so had to order the massive kit. Going to paint block this week and hopefully get everything swapped from 2.3 to 2.5
