    To get a turbo engine into a 2000 Ford would take an engine swap to a engine of that year or later that came stock with a Turbo Charger. In the Ford line this would be one of the ECO Boost engines. There is a limited selection and mating it to a transmission might prove difficult. Try a 2.7 Ecoboost out of a 2015-2017 Ford F-150 (RWD) and get the transmission too.

    Welcome to the world where you can't even purchase a decent light bulb:

    effective April 1, 2019, all forms of turbocharging on gasoline engines will be considered noncompliant with the state’s strict emission laws. As an additional blow, the wording of the new CARB regulation applies not only to aftermarket turbocharger systems, but OEM turbocharging as well.
