Mods please Lock

Okay all u "krusty veterans"...another rookie question.....I read on this forum a lot about zetec and svt etc....I just recently bought an 03 ZX5 4dr hatch..it has a 2.0 liter DOHC Zetec automatic...what's the difference between an svt and zetec....how would I know if I have a svt...would it say svt on the paperwork...being a mom reliving her youth (and wanting to get out of the minivan) I wanted something small, fun to drive, with a little pep, but safe...needless to say I love this car...

The SVTF(SVT Focus) is like the Cobra is to the mustang, It's a 6-speed Focus that puts out more HP(170) and more Torque( not sure on that one). It has more or less the same engine that in on your foci, just with some small changes that put out the extra HP. I'm not sure whats the changes are though. Can anyone help me out[paranoid]

The SVT is supercharged, that is why it puts out more power. They do make an SVT version of the ZX5 though.

teh SVT would be a factory tuned ZETEC, basically SVT did all the modifications for those that wanted it, anyhow your car can be faster for less, have fun and keep learning

i would think you would know if you had an svt. just by sitting in one you can tell the difference. not to mention the svt emblems and such around the car. basically if you have to ask....no it's not an svt.

I have yet to see another yellow ZX5 around here where I live..(2 other ZX3's)
When I saw it on the Ford lot, I knew I had to have it...Got rid of the "mommy mobile" (minivan) and my girls (11yr & almost 13yr) think my focus is "tight"

The Svt takes advantage of some small internal changes in the engine and a dual stage intake mandifold to get the extra poines. it aslo has supension and braking advacements, just FYI[:)]
