For a One Off project to get Turbo & automatic that works into a Focus, 2.0 ecoboost drivetrain from a Fusion might be a candidate.

As with most current swaps, a complete donor car is the best to start with for all the electronics & wiring to go with the drivetrain. (crunched in the tail)

Custom modified drive shafts may be the only special part needed, and that kind of part isn't hard to have made from a pair of existing axles.

Prob. more wrenching than fab needed for that possibility. Getting away from the DCT to a std. automatic should be a bonus as well.

Sounds unsafe at any speed.

I think my pun went completely over your head. Google can be a wonderful thing.
