Anything is possible, but a 7th gen swap seems like it would be pretty difficult. (Motor mounts, wiring, etc.) And if you've never done an engine swap before this wouldn't be a good one to start with.

i think it would be a bigger headache than you want to tackle. it can probably be done, but cost a lot.
the 7th gen is throttle by wire too, right? so that would have to be retro'd in...
