SVO mustang swap

I had the pleasure of getting smoked by an svo today in my turbo focus and turns out we were going to the same place so I obviously had to ask what was done besides the intake side of the turbo housing cut out to stick out of the hood. He's running 20psi making 550whp.

Now I couldn't help but notice that the engine looks so similar to a xr4t and it looks like that would be perfect for a rwd focus set up. Is it worth trying or is there better ways to make rwd focuses with the zetec or duratec? Im curious because I may be purchasing or starting my own rwd project even though I love the turbo ls1 turbo turtle has.

I have a garage in Maryland where I would have nothing but time to dedicate to a project since the last thing on my list is blowing my zetec motor and putting the built motor in.

Im moving in 2 months to my house in Maryland and selling my house here so that's when ill start looking at projects.

And 550whp on 20psi with an SVO ... I'll call B.S. on that. 350 is more realistic unless it had some substantial work done.

Plenty of work this car had full cage and all nothing seemed half ass and he's running meth injection ill believe anything he says cause he pulled way way to easily.

I would think the motor is built on 20psi with a gtx3--- turbo.

That is exactly what im thinking. That looks sick

I made 245hp with a 2.3 NA in a 79 Fox coupe. Done right 550hp is possible.

The 2.3 Lima makes power SO easily. I was disapointed when I started modding the Focus and found out how hard it is to make more power with the Zetec.
