In theory it should be possible. Doesn't ford already use a Saab derived engine in its line up. The electric drive by wire throttle will need a bit of thinking as will the ecu setup.

I've asked around for you and nobody has actually done one of these swaps. There must be someone out there.

Here is an interesting thread about the GM engines in kit cars http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/kitcar/kb.php?aid=362
