Intake-yes. Exhaust-no.
Cheap and easy cam upgrade-SVT intake cam and a ZX2 exhaust cam.

No.
SVT cams will not work in a Focus zetec.

How will they work those are both variable timing neither would work now if you did the other way around. With some fabricating the zx2 intake and the svt exhaust cams might work since neither of them are VTC's.

^ No he got the ZX2 right, dunno about the SVT, I thought they had it on both. Could be wrong.

Pretty sure the ZX2's VCT is on exhaust side though ;)

Won't work, VCT has different machining from standard zetec on the front bearing/seal area of head.
