If you don't mind a bit of fabrication work for engine mounts and can find an engine with a transverse gearbox attached (or can adapt one to fit) then the engine bay is big enough to acomodate almost any v6.

Hi Graham,
as I havn't built a Ford donored car I am not sure what parts you would need. Probably best getting in touch with Chris or maybe Ed Preston.
Ken.

Hi Graham,
That sounds like a good buy assuming the engine/box is ok. There's quite a few parts you'd want off the mondeo, like fuel pump, gear change, box, engine, instruments, fair few electrical bits, hubs, think thats all.
As Ken said though you can fit pretty much anything if you're talented with a welder, i've put a Volvo T5 into mine, which was a tight fit, but just squeezes in.

Hi Graham,
Not sure on the dimensions of the mondeo dash, but I can't imagine it would be an easy fit, there really isn't a lot of point either, the Vortex one is by far better looking, is ready built to fit the car and integrate with the rest of the interior, and is included in the kit price.
