SVT specs

putting a turbo on the SVT. Looking for detailed specs on the block, crank, rods, cam timming, valves, engine management, intake, etc...
Want to know what the motor can handle. What rpm are the internals rated at. That type of stuff.
Also any input on what to do.
Were can I find a good short block that can handle it. (400+whp)
Thanks

I hear the stock SVT internals are reliable for up to 330 WHP, but I have a ZETEC, so not 100% sure.

These pages should give you lots of info regarding our cars:

http://www.svt.ford.com/svtArchiveCo..._three=nothing
http://myfordfocus.com/svt/

There are many people on this board that are running in excess of 10psi of boost on virtually stock SVT motors. Some are above 15psi!! The pistons are lightweight aluminum, the rods are forged steel and you have variable timing on the intake cam. You also have(stock) some of the biggest cams you can get in a Focus.
You will easily be able to run 15psi on your car with a proper tune and remain a daily driver. Hope this helps...

Michael

yeah if ya want to know the limits of the engine John can tell you. he ran over 360whp for a while and when he tried to push it to 400whp it didnt last very long. im sure he will chime in and tell you what he recommends for an every day driver. and Tom at forcus power sells aftermarket blocks and stuff to take more power, but you will be able to put the returnless fuel system to its limits with the svt block.

good tuning software is the sct prp combined with Tom's dyno tunning skills

not really any need to rev any further than the stock rev limiter.

oh and i just saw some thing. your title says zetec question and you are asking the questions about your svt right? because a svt isnt a zetec

I thought the SVT had a Zetec? I'm looking for 400whp, but I know I'll need a built block so I'm going for around 300whp with stock internals. Does anyone know how I can get ahold of this Tom guy? Was thinking of switching the duel runner intake for a Ford Racing Alum. one, is that a + or -.
Thanks for any help.

the svt is a zetec. but it has better rods and a much better head than the non svt zetec. all on a higher compression platform as well. the car will support 300whp with the right tune and parts.

you will not be able to reach 400whp with out changing to a return fuel system. the dead head fuel system will loose fuel pressure. there is a focus-power section in the vendor section of this forum. that is toms section. he is probably reading this thread also. tom has been working on this problem for some time. and he could tell you in more detail about it.

the svt is a zetec but it isnt the same as the zetec. the block, rods, pistons, head, intake manifold, and ecu are all different.

here is a link to the focus-power section

wow it sure does make the svt focus look good on paper..but im not getting this part

"This unit’s innovative design incorporates an input shaft flanked by two layshafts, and each layshaft has its own set of final drive gears. Layshaft #1 carries first, second, fifth and sixth gears, and a 2.88:1 final drive ratio, while layshaft #2 carries third, fourth, reverse, and a 4.25:1 final drive ratio. All six forward gears, plus reverse, are fully synchronized. "

so basically, 1st and 2nd gear is useless for acceleration? im not understanding why they have the gears so tall

and another thing, if the svt can handle 15psi then why are numerous complaints of misfiring, early engine failure, and short clutch life been reported on a STOCK svt...i had my svt for only 3 months and was hit with the cylinder 3 misfire
