When I was considering buying a Focus I was quoted slightly less for the SVT than a standard Focus. I think the ABS and side airbags played a factor; my 3 door SVT is still an economy car to the insurance companies, at least where I'm at. I think ABS is going to save more money than doors.
Here's a link for engine ID.
No SVT engine was in the sedan, and I think the 2.3 is harder to find.
