Neither would be easy. both would require a trans,ecu,blah,bla,bla. with that in mind the standerd zetec motor would be the cheapest. with the least modifications, so in turn the easiest would be the zetec.

I think the 2.3l PZEV might be a better option... whether it's easier or not, I dunno.

not an easy or cheap or smart thing to do to a car that is 4 yrs old. It would be much more cost effective to sell your car, and buy one with the engine you want in it. Unless you have lots of money to burn, and want to put a V-6 or V-8 in it.....

Anything is possible, with enough money.

Why not spend 4-5k, and get a 1.8T swap.
