Question Will A SVT Crate Engine Fit in my 01 ZX3?

I was thinking about buying a brand new SVT focus engine and put it into my 01 ZX3 5 spd, but i wasn't sure if it would bolt ( i use bolt loosley) straight in just like the stock engine or would i have to make any mods/what kind? and would it be worth it?

yeah, that's for sure. Don't go through all the effort for such minimal gains. Look into maybe an SVT contour engine swap or something along those lines so that your time and effort are actually well spent.

The SVT contour engine is a better investment than the SVT focus engine. It has more torque cause it's a V6. Besides the ZETEC engine has a lot of performance mods to soup it up pretty good. Anyway good luck with your dicision.

ITLL work out for the best. Yall see!

for the price of an SVT motor you can turbo the stock motor and get more performance.

For the amount of money time and effort it would take to swap an SVT motor into your 2001 zx3, it would just be easier, and more than likely cheaper, to just sell your car and buy an SVT. Now for the contour motor, that would be cool! Just make sure it is the SVT contour motor!

theres actually not too big of a difference between the two. i think its just dif cams, intake mani, and header. which can all be swapped.
