2003 SVT Motor Mount ??? so confused ???

Ok so when i bought my 03 SVT it needed a passenger side upper motor mount. Figuring i would just get an aftermarket one as it was cheaper or comparable in price to a stock replacement, i bought one from C-F-M. I'm not complaining about the performance aspect as i noticed firmer shifting and better handling immediately just from one polyurethane mount. It is listed as motor mount for 02-04 SVT and installed with no problems. HOWEVER, despite the benefits the mount allows for too much engine vibration and shakes the steering wheel in the most annoying manner when im stopped at a light, etc. Its so annoying that i tried buying a stock used mount from MACHSLAMMER, a fellow focus fanatic parting out his 03 SVT. Well i go to install the mount on my car and its not an SVT mount. Its a stock zetec mount and he insists that the mount came from a stock 03 SVTF. I see no way why ford, who produced a limited number of SVT Foci in general, would split up their own SVT fleet with which mount they used. Has anyone ever encountered having a stock zetec motor mount on their SVT while I have the normal typical SVT specific mount??

Am i getting BS'd by him or what?

i believe the only mount that is different between the 2 motors is the right side mount.

The passenger side mount is different; the other two are the same. I suppose it's possible to install the non-SVT mount into an SVT, but you would only be able to use one bolt to secure it instead of two (unless MACHSLAMMER drilled another hole in his car).

if u use the C-F-M motor mount the vibration is going to be there, if u go ahead and put all poly-eurothane mounts in, it will even out the vibration to where it isnt as bad, in my case anyway.. plus in about a couple of months u will get used to it, and u will forget what it was like to have the stock mounts, in my case also..

to answer ppl no i didn't sell the cfm mount, but i'd love to sell the cfm one if someone has a stock SVT motor mount for sale. Its not so much that i can't get used to the vibration but that THIS IS NOT MY TWIN TURBO MUSTANG! this is my daily driver and ur daily driver shouldn't shake like all hell at stop lights, its emberassing as if there is something wrong with my car.

I'm gonna ask the guy for a refund since he finally contacted me and still says its from his parts 03 SVT. Hell i think the guy got screwed and someone swapped svt body and interior into a stock zetec focus but thats not my problem.

plus why the F#$K would i pay $50 for a used zetec motor mount anyways? those things could fall off trees in junkyards as compared to finding an SVT with the mount....blah...its just frustrating when ppl screw u over.

ya it seems either you or him have a std zetec... you should have a gray valve cover that says "Powered by SVT" on it

Focussport's website has a good pic of why they wont fit.



the one on the left is the std. zetec and the one on the top,left is the SVT

Is this the mount you bought? I found it in MACHSLAMMER's parting thread:



That definitely didn't come out of an SVT.
