    I haven't heard of anyone doing it, but of course it can be with enough determination and skill and brains.

    anything is possible. seems like a lot of work.. focus is direct injection and everything is electronic. i could see having issues getting it to run due to the CAN bus missing inputs from the other modules.

    Over in the UK they make carb kits for newer ford 4 bangers and standalone ECUs to run the coil packs so one could delete most of the electronics. danst engineering sell some. Might be worth looking into

    If it's an automatic don't bother. The dual clutch transmissions are junk.

    If it's stick, have fun. The mounts will need to be custom made, the electronics will be very tricky to make work, and you'll need to fabricate an exhaust.

    It would probably be better to go full standalone for the ECU unless Ford makes a control pack kit for the engine you want to use. Exhaust is going to be fun given that it's on the back side of the motor instead of the front, no to mention the custom axles that are going to be needed.

    You would be better off putting the 2014 engine into the 1995, and just using the 1995 transmission. If money is no object.
