i have an 02 svtf i love it to death. the handling is awesome right out of the box. they are 170 hp stock they are quick for a 4 cyl. the aftermarket for these cars is growing every year. check out steedafocus.com, c-f-m.com and f2focus.com for aftermarket stuff, im sure other people on this forum have even more places to get parts. 03orangesvt is pshing 360 hp and 316 trq to the ground w/ his svt on stock internals, the clutch shld probably be replaced. i love my car and wouldnt replace w/ nothing (execpt an 03-04 cobra) but thats it

well, how often are you going to beat on it? if its an every day beating fest, then what do you think?

if youre easy on them, and dont beat the piss out of them, their fine

as for hp numbers, no clue.. havnt looked into it b/c i dont own one.. lol

parts for them, endless ammounts of great parts...

well its going to be an every day driver. so the odds of me beating the out of it will be slim to none but i would like to do a couple of races just to see what it has if i were to get it.

if i were to get it the mods i probably would do right away is an full exhaust, short throw shifter and a cai or an short ram. supercharger/turbo would be in the future tho.

only exhaust mod thats worth the money pre-FI is a high flow cat or ORP. Tune should be the first mod for this car. PM Tom at Focus-Power for one.
