I like the SVT but they do seem to have more problems than the regular Foci. Also, I don't see how a higher compression motor is going to be better for boost. If you plan on doing some serious upgrading I would probably start with an 03-04 ZX3 with the 2.3 Duratec and a mtx. I hear there is a conversion to the SVT trans available or it's possible. There are many ways to look at this but I would say if you want to keep it stock SVT, mod it 2.3 MTX.
