I've seen the 2.5 DOHC from a Probe GT stuffed into an Escort before, and that's a larger motor on the outside. The Escort's platform mate the Mazda MX-3 even had a factory V6 option. It probably could be done, but would take a really big shoehorn and a willingness to do a swap nobody has ever tried before.
