Yes. I totally agree. <minus the 2.0 duratec idea>. Drop in a 2.0 duratec into a 2.3 car sounds like moving to Problem City.

The OP engine swap idea is never going to happen, or should not be done. If done; big time waste, money toss, and great headaches should follow.

With that said... anything like that is possible. Pain threshold.
Always check your fluid levels, -then check your car.
