yes. that swap will work no problem. I would recommend doing a leak down on his engine to see if you have any compression or valve issues before you tear your engine apart. Do a vacuum test while it is running and see if that tells you anything as to how it is running. And if you keep his trans in the car, I would recommend only pulling the engine. I find it to be much easier, the car can still be moved and is a lot less work! If you'd like more info, ask here or check out the forum, www.fordfestiva.com regards,
