Drop the rod and pistons into the 1995 block. Tap the block with a 1/2" NPT tap for the oil drain. Bolt on the turbo. You want a 2.5L ECU, they have more tuning options and are plug and play for 95-97's. You want 42lb Green Top FoMoCo injectors and a 2005+ Focus slot maf and a custom intercooler setup. SCT Flash can tune it for you. You can keep the OBD-II and dual plugs and have your turbo too.

I like that, that's way less fuss than trying to convert, nothing wrong with the LA3 but the OBDII stuff is more ingrained in the vehicle
