I found a rebuild kit at rockauto. It's listed as an engine code 5 (svt) rebuild, but I'm not sure how svt specific it really is. Comes with gaskets, seals, head/main/rod bolts, main/rod bearings, rings, pistons & rods, and an option with or w/o oil pump. Same parts listed as the Clegg site, about the same price too. But I'm not completely sure the rods would be forged, or the oil pump is svt grade. I think it was $300-$400. My motor swap project has been sitting for a while, and now it won't turn over... So I'm in the market for a rebuild as well.

Beware if they include pistons and rods, I highly doubt that a jobber brand will invest in special tooling to reproduce our forged rods and flat top pistons (particularly for 300$, which is less than the cost on a set of forged rods alone ....)

Basically the svt block is the same as a regular zetec. But has oil squirters,forged rods pistons and uses a different headgasket

You can use zetec pistons and rods (be sure to get the 9.5:1 or higher compression to retain closer to factory compression ratio), but you cannot use svt pistons and zetec rods/svt rods and zetec pistons due to wrist pin locations. Everything else, besides headgasket thickness, is the same.

The Zetec pistons and rods will bolt in but are not the same , the SVT rods are longer and the pistons have more compression then the Zetec engine

This^^^^^^^^^^^ Plus the wrist pin is larger too, so no mixing & matching.
