Hey guys, im new to this forum and cars in general. Im trying to lean as much as I can. I just recently purchased a Focus zx3 with the help of my dad, and i want build it up to specs of the SVT then throw a turbo on her so my dad and i can race her. what exactly makes the SVT focus and SVT, and how would i be able to transform my zx3 into and SVT.

thanks Mike

It wouldnt be worth it , The only real Diff is the head and the 6 speed , You can make about the same power with the STD Zetec and a lot less work

I am at over 500HP with my STD Zetec engine
