Does the Ford 2.3 l ecoboost engine have the same bellhousing bolt pattern as the 3.5 V6?

I was looking again at some of the specs and info on the 3.0 l Turbo Lincoln MKZ. I was rather intrigued that it uses the same active rear differential, with the Drivers Pack, as the Focus RS.
The Focus RS comes with a 6-speed manual transmission. Also according to Specs the Lincoln can shift up to 70% of its power to the rear wheels. 400 hp and 400 lbs tq.
Not exactly sure what that entails with the PTU that's used in our cars. Is it the same one as ours?
Also kinda dreaming about what it would take to fit the 6-speed from the Focus RS into a Taurus SHO or a Lincoln MKS. LOL
Is the bellhousing the same? Mind you there's probably no way with the weight difference that the Focus RS manual transmission would live very long either. LOL
One other thing I'm not exactly sure of. Apparently Quifie offers a LSD differential for the Ford Focus. Not sure if this is for the automatic 6F15 used in the Ford Focus. 6F15 is the little brother to the 6F55. Would be interesting if this could be fitted.

Not sure how I would feel about a stick in a SHO . . . the guy that is coming off a 6-speed manual Mustang GT says yeah, but the guy that has some seat time in a SHO isn't so sure. The cockpit doesn't really feel like it would work well with a standard.

The 2.3 has a different bellhousing, and the ptu is different in the focus rs as well. The rear diff from an rs/mkz wouldn’t work as it needs another module/programming to work. And the 6f15 is very different in design to the 6f55. The quaife lsd is most likely for the 6 speed manual in the focus st and rs.
