|Bonesz03||No but that's probably a good idea lol|

|Red01Focus||have you tried posting in the svt performance section to see what the suggest to replace to get the car running smoother again|

|Bonesz03||But my car has been running horribly recently, and what's wrong with it matches up to what the symptoms of a bad EGR valve would be. But thanks for that link bud!|

Motor mount part # A3085HY
SVTF's do not have an EGR system, so no need for EGR valve, if you wanted one - you would have to weld it onto the header and get an EGR control module.
EDIT: Not even sure if you can add an EGR system to your engine.

So I've decided I'm just gonna buy the parts and my uncle (who actually listens to me lol) and I will fix it. As of right now she needs an EGR valve, but apparently the electronic module or something is missing? Can someone send me a good trust-able link to these parts so I know I'm getting the right thing?
EDIT: I also need a right front motor mount still, a link to that would also be much appreciated.

Did you show him the pic of the zx3 engine? Or tell him that an SVT engine has a VCT solenoid on the ps side of the vale cover, no other focus engine has that. The difference between the SVT and regular zetec ps motor mount is quite simple: the holes are in different spots. Just use the link I gave you to decode your vin to prove to him what kind of car you have.

|Bonesz03||Yeah he also thinks the tranny was pulled out of a 'real' SVT. I try to tell him he's an idiot but "he's the mechanic he knows best blahblah"|

Yeah, your stepdad is full of crap lol
This is a Zetec motor:
^That motor is in all U.S. ZX3's
Also if your tranny is a 6-speed, then you have an SVT. The 6-speed getrag was only offered in the SVT.
You can also decode the vin number here:

|Bonesz03||So my stepdad believes my car is just a ZX3 with the SVT bodykit, interior, and a ZX3 motor. Personally I think he's full of crap, anyone else?|

|Bonesz03||Oh I totally believe you guys lol I'll look into it|
