oh, it's for the 96 2.4.. thanks for the heads up,  i would get a magna, but have no idea where to even attempt to get one shipped to the states... i already tried to get an intake shipped to states from a yard, and was told "No" resoundingly..

No it doesn't. Some people have speculated using the Jeep Liberty transmission.

Well.. Damnit.. i don't see any manual trans, except for the 3.7 which i'm sure doesn't fit either.

anyway, OP if you want to do a 2.3 eco more power to you, personally if i was ot choose an eco boost to use, i'd use the V6 from the f150.

Why can't the ecoboost use a standalone ECU?  like a AEM/ Motech/Haltech/ MegaSquirt? your driving injectors, coils, and reading digital sensors.. don't see why that isn't an option.  biggest hurdle i see is the transmission and mounting longitudinal verses transverse in regards to oil pickup.
i personally wouldn't go with a ford engine, as i think they are a POS and component alignment for cam/crank is all done through special tools, and they don't have alignment dowels, all held on by friggin applied torque of the bolts.
heck i say shove a dodge 2.4 from a SRT4 or PT turbo in there, or do a 4G64 build but that's just me.  i like larger displacement.

SPeakign of the SRT 2.4... anyone see if the bolt holes line up with our trans yet?

you will likely need to pull the crank and use the wood handle of a heavy hammer to loosen them up by tapping on them.  then put a hone down each cylinder for clean up and see what your really working with.

the chunks are likely hardened carbon in the oil system that came loose as the car sat, which is why you didn't see anything missing from metal components and if that is the case, it means it likely had an oil leak and the previous owner just kept adding oil, or he ran it hard and put it away hot without letting it idle for a while.

another reason to remove crank and manually tap out pistons is to verify the rods aren't rust siezed on the crank.
