Unhappy 2002 DOHC Zetech swap with 2003 svt motor and trans

So my focus motor just took a crap. Friends and I Are thinking that a hole burnt into the piston, because my car is doing the same thing as a friends escort did. But anyway is it possible to swap a 2002 DOHC Zetech with a 2003 svt motor and trans? And if possible how hard or easy is it? Please help it's my daily driver and I'm in need of help, thanks.

You'll need a few things, but it's not really too hard for a shop to pull off --or someone with a bit of knowhow. It can be pricey --I was going to do a full swap, but decided to rebuild my Zetec and just do a tranny swap over the cost.

There are a few threads about doing this already. Most of us Zetech guys are running several parts from the SVTs. I've got the breaks, suspension and am bolting the SVT tranny to my regular Zetech this weekend.

Deep down the Zetech and the SVT Zetech are the same damn engine. The SVT Zetech is just....pre-modded LOL.

List o stuffs

Full SVT wiring harness
SVT ECU
SVT/aftermarket header
SVT dipstick
SVT passenger motor mount
SVT heater to oil cooler hose
SVT oil cooler to manifold hose
SVT MAS and air tube
SVT/aftermarket air box and snorkle
SVT power steering line
SVT/aftermarket cat
SVT/aftermarket flex pipe
SVT/aftermarket exhaust
SVT fuel pump and sending unit

Tranny is optional if you have a manual
SVT axle shafts
SVT Shifter cables
SVT clutch
SVT Tranny
SVT Tranny wiring harness
SVT/aftermarket shifter

If you have an auto
Clutch cylinder and throwout
Fluid lines for clutch

I know I'm forgetting stuff --but I forgot which bits I'm forgetting...

Zetech ftw. lmao. its a zetec

but yes you can swap the engines and ontop of the list before you will need the keys matched to the ecu/PATS system or pay ford to do it.

if you want faster, just swap in built normal zetec or a low miles engine and boost it to around 220-250whp probably cheaper boosting a stock zetec and still be about 80-100whp over a svt swap

Hell, a newer engine with an SVT exhaust and SVT intake would be a better idea IMHO. The SVTs I see have all been driven to absolute death.
