2005 2.0 Engine/Tranny Compatibilty

Hey guys. Quick question.
I have a working 2.0 engine and auto tranny from a 2005 Focus ZX4.
I am wondering what years this combo will drop into without much hassle?
Im thinking 2000-2007. Is that correct? Or will this work in the newer 2007-2011 body as well?
Thanks.

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.

Thanks for the reply. I'm not too concerned with having to search for a full vehicle. What I am confused on is the mounts.
I really like the 08-11 styling a lot more and I would be willing to shell out a little more for a newer chassis. I'm just worried that I will have to fab too much to drop it in. I should have been more clear about what I have. The engine and tranny are currently in a running vehicle that I'm going to pull everything put of so I would have everything I need? Will the PCM swap right into the newer chassis? What about the engine side wiring harness?
Thanks so much for the info.

The motor & trans will fit w/ no issues. Its the pcm, I'd figure out if the '05 pcm can plug into the '08+ cars. Or you can use the oem pcm on the '05 motor w/ a tune. The '08+ cars use a cam senser on the intake, not sure what it does. Maybe someone else can chime in on that feature.
