Porting the SVT TB does nothing , waste of time and money , to add a TB in my opinion is well worth it , Its one of the few mods for the SVT to do

Even if it doesn't give you much of a gain in terms of peak horsepower, doesn't the better throttle response suggest it's making more power throughout the rest of the RPM range?

If you don't want to pay 250 for a CFM goto eBay and buy the 66mm SVT focus throttle body from BBK it is posted as a buy it now for 250 or there is an option to make an offer. Both sellers that have the make an offer option accepted offers for 200.
How is the BBK 66mm nowadays? Do you have the sellers info for that TB? This would be my first post as a Focus SVT owner. Also, with my stock intake do I require a hose conversion to the 66mm TB?

IF you want to waken up the focus and make it more fun to drive, them I suggest looking into a custom tune. I have the Diablo predator with Tom's tune. THe tune paired with the new throttle body, makes the focus feel like a completely different car. But man, if you've driving on stock for a while do there two things and you'll love your car that much more.
^^^^^^^^^^This^^^^^^^^^^^^^. I remember when I test drove a couple of svt's back in '04 & they both had lazy throttle response. The Diable predator & a TB really gets the svt's rolling.

I'll be ordering mine (CFM 67mm TB) this weekend, and will be sure to post my opinion on the difference I feel!

LOADED Note: Stock Svt Throttle body is 63mm.

Stock SVT exhaust is 2.28"

Ok Your throttle responce will be greatly improved! the 2-4mm increase in bore, It has not proven or disproven to gain or stay the same in power. If your engine is Forced induction then you will see a better power gain with a larger throttle body.

Another option is porting your stock SVT throttle body. Some say they have the same gains as a 65-67mm tb. but I dont trust doing that kinda stuff myself.

In the end It makes your car that much funner to drive, and you get from 0-60 a little faster.
