but I guess i cant be too salty cause the car have a damn near new engine, fuel rail, aftermarket motor mounts, msd plugs and coil pack, brand new urathane bushings, brand new front and rear sway bar, brand new rear strut bar, pro tube cai, and a tune on the ecu. the tranny is a 6 speed, and the engine does have quite a bit from the svt engine. thats why i really thought it was one. also there's h&r springs and lowered struts as well. the tires are very good, and the wheels i have no idea what model they are since there's no markings but they look nice. also there's a new paint job (red to black now).

You have the wrong #. That is a head #.
Look lower.

This is the zetec #'S:



Block # is: RFYS466015AD



This is the SVT block:




Block # is: RFYS466015AD



Confusing ain't it.
It's because the SVT and zetec are the same block. The SVT blocks were picked from the line and further machined. On the lower # location it will differ. That location is on the bottom lip of the block, towards the transmission, facing the radiator.

Now are there any other identifiers that would point this out as being an SVT block? I jsut went outside and noticed that it has the two different numbers as you described.

Odd he isnt getting the VCT code , must be turned off in the tune

I take it this is still turbo , If so I wouldnt wory about it and enjoy your car as it is adding a SVT engine because you have boost wont make any more power

From what I gathered, this car used to be turboed. The previous owner removed the setup and cut all the wires to the controllers and gauges inside. The front bumper even have some slight modification on the inside for the intercooler and piping. Even the inside fender wells were cut. Then there's the 3" exhaust from the headers all the way back to a magnaflow exhaust then 3" piping to the rear bumper that gave it away. I dont see a stock zetek needing that thick of an exhaust pipe on a stock engine. I would think that a car needs some form of back pressure and for a n/a engine that would actually make you lose power to have no restriction at all. I maybe wrong so feel free to chime in. I already replaced the exhaust with a smaller magnaflow exhaust and also added a magnaflow resonator. The entire pipe from the headers on back is now 2.25". I also am working on ripping out whatever type of alarm system the car has. I figure it's the stock alarm thats been modified in some form. I have the Ford key fob and when i press the lock button once it chirps when i press it twice it chirps twice. if i bump the car off goes the alarm. if i dont lock the door a minute later it chirps. if i bump the car it goes off. I live in a respected neighborhood and i hate to piss off my neighbors. I live around mainly LEO's.
