2006 2.0L engine in a 2002 wagon

Anybody know if it is possible, any issues? I have a wrecked 2006 ZX4, and can get a 2002 with a bad engine.

Well, issue number 1; 2002 had an SPI or Zetec engine; 2006 had some form of Duratec engine. So it's not a straight forward swap.

You can do it. Its more work then just changing motors as the '02 has a zetec or spi & you have a D-tech. You'd have to figure out if you have more time or cash. I'd figure out my labor & time vs looking at another car. Your time is worth something.

You'd need a whole swap car. That engine will not bolt up to one of the older transmission bolt patterns. The engine wiring harness and under-hood power harness are different. You will be able to mount the engine and trans in there fairly easily. The polyurethane front engine mount for a D-tec by VF Engineering is an adapted Zetec mount. The other 2 mounts are the same as long as the transmission is the same MT or AT. You'll need all the swap car computers too.

If I could be sure that the PATS system would have no problems, I would do this. However, I think this would be a wiring nightmare.
Thanks for the help.

PATS is easy as long as you have a key from the donor car. Simply remove the RFID chip and put that chip in the key that works in the ignition lock cylinder. If you don't mind having a car with 2 keys, then swap the ignition lock cylinder.

Also, the exhaust system is different up to the first flange. I think that flange might be in a different position. The Dtec exhaust comes off the back side of the engine compartment, not from the front of the engine compartment like the Zetec or SPI.
