You don't EVER want the belt to jump time in a SVT. It's a interference motor which means the valves could hit the pistons and cause all sorts of problems you don't want. On the normal zetec it can jump time and even throw the belt off and it will be ok 99% of the time due to it not being a interference motor. Though I wouldn't recommend doing that.
