If you are building the car for autocross only i'd definitely go with the 2.3 duratec zx3. the down low grunt is extremely important in an STF car.. the SVT will have it's courses but for the most part i think the 2.3 will have the advantage.
and if i'm not mistaken the 2.3 zx3 is lighter (in stock form) than an SVT. better starting point IMO.
