Engine Swap Duratec 2.5L replacing 2.3L in 05 Escape

I have a 05 Escape and need a replacement engine. I have found a number of late model 2.5L with very low miles for more then a fair price. Is the Duratec 2.5L longblock a direct swap with the old 2.3L intake and sensors or is the wiring and ECU all needed to make the 2.5L work.

Honestly, you're probably safer pulling everything from the donor. Ford d notorious for changing things between vintages and since you're actually changing engine size it's hard to tell how many differences there may be.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
