Even if you would be able to fit everything into our cars, a person would practically need a donor car and a fab shop to make this possible. The entire electrical system (wire harness, computer units, dash), longblock and hybrid drivetrain would have to be put in.

Putting 3.5L Ecoboost Turbo stuff onto your 3.7L is a costly mistake, way too many changes to make it worth the effort. Better to just transplant a 3.5L Ecoboost from a F150, but even that is a BIG complicated & expensive effort, way beyond most do-it-at-home car guys. The rear-face-of-block and the motor mounts are the same, but just about every other thing is different. It can be done, but really, there are many cheaper and easier ways to make your 3.7L make the same power.
