Not even sure if this is a thing? Has anyone ever attempted and/or successfully completed an engine swap on their ST? Is it even worth a try? Thanks in advance...

from what to what? I guess if you've got a blown motor and find a nice donor, sure. You need to be more specific in your post!

From stock to pretty much anything else! I'm just wondering if anyone has ever attempted an engine swap in their ST at all.

To another ST motor? Ya lol. Some people have built 2.3l motors and put them in.

I've heard of others stroking the 2.0 to a 2.3 but that's about it

I have kind of wondered the same thing. Like if there was a swap to the 2.3L RS engine in our ST's.

Only swap I know of is the Lincoln MKC 2.3 swap. Which is the same FWD orientation 2.3 unlike the mustangs. I think either FRPP or Mountune has done it. Besides that, theres no reason. The ford ECU is the cat's meow for tuning, so there isn't many upgrades to be had with the space and orientation in mind.

If you have money to burn by swapping out what's already a pretty potent motor, send your cash to me. I'll upgrade my ST and save myself the headache and aggravation.
