How about this?

Your issue then is getting all the bits to make it fit. I'm in the middle of an ST170 install at the minute and I'm running around the 5 grand mark. I've used the retro Ford stage 2 kit which is just over 3 grand. I then bought Dan ST engineering throttle bodies and a ME 221 engine management system which was another £1650. Add in fuel pump, filter, fuel lines, fuel pressure regulator, new radiator fan, coolant hoses and the price soon adds up. You will save a bit using your emerald as long as it can run the VVT.

However, once finished I'll have a fuel injected engine, running around 190bhp.

I had messaged him about this engine, it had a blown thermostat O ring, that could lead tool sorts of issues, If Im not being fastidious about purchasing top line stuff, and work to a budget, I think 1.5k is reasonable, perhaps a decent exhaust manifold, Good luck with your build.  Is there a thread?

Yeah you can use the 1.8 zetec flywheel and a used clutch to keep the price down. Hopefully you can pick up a decent gearbox and bell housing as well. Yes I have a thread on the build in the restoration page on here. Just look up installing a ST170 engine.
