walbro's are designed for return systems the Focus is returnless.

the SVT is not 255 more like ~236 but nobody has posted experimental PROOF of this.

According to Steve@tousley there is no difference between the part numbers for std zetec and SVT pumps of the same era. There are 4 era's. 00-01 02-02.5, 02.5-03, 03-04.

O.K. lets get this whole thread straight.

There is no difference between a regular ZX3 pump and an SVT pump.

All Zetec Foci use the same pumps in their particular model years.

2001-
1M5Z-9H307-CA this is the upgraded recall pump.

2002-
early 1M5Z-9H307-CA
late 2M5Z-9H307-AD

2003 and 2004 share the same pump.
3S4Z-9H307-BC

The Duratec cars do use different pumps.

My '02 SVT uses the 2M5Z-9H307-AD pump, I can tell you that I sell the '03 Focus pumps to guys with '03-'04 Cobra Mustangs because their pump housings have two pump motors in them and the individual Focus pumps do flow more than the individual Cobra pumps.

I can also tell you that the Focus pump does not flow much if at all better than a stock Mustang GT pump so when guys with high HP GT's need to upgrade they either go to a Lincoln Aviator pump or spend the big bucks and upgrade to the '03-'04 Cobra tank and dual pump setup.

It is possible that all '02 SVT's were built with the late build pump and that is where the myth of the SVTF pump came from but I gaurantee that there are lots of standard Foci out there running the same pump.

I have no specs on the pumps, only catalog listings so it is possible that the late ones have a higher flow rating but I have no way to know that.

When I sell them to Cobra guys I sell the '03-'04 pump because it is the least expensive.

I hope all this makes sense.
from the horse's mouth.

yes the o3 o4's have two. the o1's only have one. and every thing i had seen said that they were the same pump but only two of them instead of one. i may be wrong again tho. i know the o1's are the same pump as the o3o4's but only one instead of two.

so one for one the focus pump does flow more then the cobra's ok. good info to know. wondering then if we would be able to swap to a gt40 pump like the cobra guys do? but only run one instead of two. idk if that would help any one or not.

The ZX3 pump and the SVT pump ARE NOT the same or back when I tested them they were not , I dont have the numbers in front of me the thinking something like 165 to 175 on the ZX3 and 195-205 on the SVT but that been some time and im guessing but the SVT green top use to pump more LPH then the ZX3 pump

When I go back to the Dyno I will see if I still have that info
