Reason I ask is because I'm in the market for a 2.0 ecoboost Fusion, and that'd be awesome if I could use the same mods/programmers as the ST.
The engine is similar, but the programming and intake/ exhaust are different for the different applications. Its not necessarily good for it to throw the same tune, especially when the ST is a 6MT only and the Fusion is a 6F35 automatic only. Some of the engine mods like an air intake may work fine, but the exhaust, or other power train modifications won't fit the different body.

TL:DR The short answer is no, most things won't work on the Fusion as far as programming, exhaust mods, motor mounts, etc.
