Looks like they gave you the wrong mount. Bolt mounting on the first picture is staggard, while the one you say advance gave you they are not. Take that mount back, along with the original mount and have them match them up, or order the correct one online

I did take it back, they looked it up on their computer and it kept coming up the wrong one. We went through all the Focus' until we got to the '06 or '07 SES and it matched but it was more expensive and I didn't have the money on me so I didn't grab it. But that led me to believe the motor was swapped. Sooo I guess Advance Auto's computers are just...wrong? lol

lol just got to ask yourself who you want to believe...

a mediocre auto parts store that caters to the general public with every car in existence

or an online community of fanatic focus drivers that know the ins and outs over ever aspect of this car.

personally I would trust the fanatics and order the correct mount from rock auto

So my stepdad believes my car is just a ZX3 with the SVT bodykit, interior, and a ZX3 motor. Personally I think he's full of crap, anyone else?

Yeah, your stepdad is full of crap lol

This is a Zetec motor:


^That motor is in all U.S. ZX3's

Also if your tranny is a 6-speed, then you have an SVT. The 6-speed getrag was only offered in the SVT.

You can also decode the vin number here:

Did you show him the pic of the zx3 engine? Or tell him that an SVT engine has a VCT solenoid on the ps side of the vale cover, no other focus engine has that. The difference between the SVT and regular zetec ps motor mount is quite simple: the holes are in different spots. Just use the link I gave you to decode your vin to prove to him what kind of car you have.
