Question 1996 Ford Ranger 2.3 Duratec Conversion

Hello guys,

I need some advice and possible help for a friend of mine. He owns a 1996 Ford Ranger Automatic where the timing belt on the 2.3L broke and basically destroyed the entire engine. My question is can he upgrade to the 2.3L Duratec with the timing chain without any nightmares or problems associated with the swap? If so, please provide information on what parts in needed, the costs and time consumed, and finally the easiness or hardness of this swap. Thank You !
