i got a 00 zx-3 blew the trannie out and got a 02 SVT motor and trannie for a swap... so i swap'd motors and wirein harness's and while doin so. i realized that i need a chip that matches the computer.. or the anti-theft system wont let the car start....
is there any way around this.? or do i need a reprogramming?

You need an SVT computer, the zx3 computer wont run the SVT engine. And then you need to take that computer to Ford and get it flashed for your anti-theft keys.

i have a svt computer.. so i should just be to have my old chip in my key match my new computer? or do you think if i got the VIN number out of the car the motor came out of if they could make me new chips?

You can use your old keys, as long as you have 2 PATS keys all you have to do is take the keys and computer in and ask them to have the computer matched to the keys

Yeah, so I guess you know you have to use SVT axles then?
03-27-2009, 07:29 PM
he said the axles will be here monday. read his last post.
03-27-2009, 07:30 PM
yeah just making sure he didnt buy more zx3 axles lol

correct the SVT splines are finer on the transmission side of the cv axle's...i got a set of SVT axles with my motor but there mushroom'd....
are focus axles always so hard to get out? i hammered for 30 mins with a airhammer be4 the driver side came loose...
but on another note are there any good mods for the 02 SVTF?

^^^DANG MAN!!!! YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW!!!! There are SO many mods you can do to the SVT, and I'ma tell you what, your in the right place. There is absolutely NOBODY that matches us in knowledge(well..... FJ would argue.... but we know were better!) and everyone on here is super nice. Everything you'll need is in the SVT section of the forum. Plus, we've got forums special for suspension work, exterior work, interior work. I.C.E., Boosted stuff, Swap information, and a ton of other stuff.
