turbo charged svt

alright yall... i currently own a 02' zx3 but i want to purchase an svt engine w/tranny, turbocharge it then drop it in my focus... now 3 questions

1. does anyone kno how hard it would be to drop a svt into a zx3?
2. does the svt engine respond well to turbo's
3. should i just forget the svt and get a zx3 engine and turbo it?

1. Probably be a waste of money, just build your zetec
2. There is a guy on here running 19psi and making like 330-340whp on an all stock internal SVT
3. yes

i don't know, the zx3's internals are pretty weak from what i've heard. there's a reason these guys are getting over 300 hp on stock svt internals. they're built to handle it. if you've got a duratec and have the money, i'd go with the cosworth kits that are highlighted in focus fanatics. stage1 and stage2 will give you 200 flywheel hp, the one they built put down over 170 at the wheels, and if i remember right almost 150 ft/lbs. if you're running a zetec, then, i don't know, i think i'd probably do the swap. but that duratec build by cosworth looks great. the stage 3 kit, which isn't street legal (ha, ha,ha) puts down 230 at the flywheel. whoo-hoo!!
