The problem is not going to be the engine so much as the computers. Hopefully you get a car with a bad motor, and then you've not no problem swapping. That engine will fit in 05-11 Focis without many issues- provided the car you find has an engine in it. If it doesn't, then you might be missing some parts. 05-07 have the same air cleaner, but the 08+ is different- the MAF is different, then air filter itself is different- yadda yadda yadda.

Your best bet is to find an 05- not so much because that's the engine and trans you have, but because those will be older and you'll probably have better luck finding one with a blown engine.
