many of the oil manufacturers have guides to tell you what to put in your car. Mobil 1 trans blah blah for the focus, AMSOIL blah blah for the SVT, you get the idea

worth checking out

5w30 not synthetic. CONVENTIONAL. Everything i have read on this sight says not to use synthetic in the SVT I'm pretty sure anyway. I have been using Quaker State 5w30 in mine and i am very pleased. As for the tranny the poll leads with Royal Purple Syncromax or Syncromesh not sure on the name but it leads by a lot.

No way, I have only ever used Mobile1 and just switched to RP synthetic and it's great. My car doesn't leak a bit of oil and I'm at 123K miles. I also use Mobile1 in my tranny.

I don't think you read that on this site...
The SVTF Owners Supplement states semi-synthetic.
^^^Motorcraft Super Premium Motor oil (Ford spec WSS-M2C205-A) is semi-synthetic.
And, I'll bet 75% of SVTF owners (at least those on this site) use fully synthetic in their engine.

As far as transmission fluid:
Poll: Getrag fluid poll, what you usin?

Here's a scan of the 2004 SVTF Supplement:
