Question Identifying some inherited parts

So, while I was tearing things apart last week (not quite literally, although I got a lot done), I discovered that my SVT has more aftermarket components than I originally thought (including a Borla exhaust in great shape, woot). I was hoping someone could help me identify one or two components, or at least help confirm my suspicions.


First is the throttle body, which doesn't have a brand or model that I've found (I haven't removed the SRI or looked inside):






It has the same red finish as the UDP set I found installed from Focus Central, so I'm curious if it's from that company. There's also this, which I'm pretty sure is a polyurethane mount, just not sure which brand:




Anyone recognize one or both of these?

The throttle body should have the company logo on the butterfly plate. Looks like a Focus Central one to me though. And your second picture is of your passenger motor mount. There are a couple companies that make those. Steeda and VF.

Based on the design (and the lack of a Steeda logo), I'm thinking the mount is this one: http://focus.c-f-m.com/vf-engineerin...ord-focus.aspx It's definitely the driver mount; I just had the passenger mount off during a timing belt change, and it's still stock (and probably in need of a change). I might dig a little deeper and see if I can confirm that the throttle body is a FC. It's the only red throttle body I can find on Google, which would make it a 65mm.

I've had it for about nine months now, but hadn't really delved under the hood much until recently. I knew there were a fair number of aftermarket parts, but it wasn't until after I found the Focus Central underdrive pulley set (crank + water pump) that I really started poking around to see what else might be changed that I hadn't already seen.

Just take the intake off and look inside the TB.

Focus central was a great aftermarket company. That TB is a good one along w/ your udp's. Do you have a dogbone? And do you have a tune on your svt?

The dog bone looks original--I want to upgrade to the poly mounts, but I spent all my wife would let me buying the tools and parts to change my timing (and serpentine, water pump, thermostat & housing, etc). I was thinking about schlepping some Auto Zone mounts until I can properly upgrade them, likely next year.

I ran into the previous owner (lucky coincidence, I didn't buy the car directly from him), and he did say he'd tuned it. He offered to sell me his old tuner, but I'd rather check with Tom and do it properly from the start.

Focus Central usually stamped the butterfly plate on their throttle bodies. If you had your intake off and didn't see the stamp right away, it is probably not a Focus Central TB. It could also be one that is sold through Steeda or CFM if there is no stamp on it. I have a black throttle body that is similar in design that was from Steeda and it has no stamp on it from either Steeda or FC. The transmission mount appears to be a Steeda brand, I have the VF Engineering mount and it looks like this.
