Hello. It may be possible to swap those engines if the chassis are similar, the correct transmission and mounts are used, and all of the wiring and engine management components are swapped over. If the factory components do not work for the swap, then it may even be possible to have custom mounts made, however, it will probably be an expensive job. I would contact your local Ford dealership for details on whether or not the engines will swap easily. I would also inquire about what transmission, axles, mounts, and computer are needed for the swap to work.
