Hey guys looking for some info about the 8th letter in the vin. I have the vehicle with the 8th character being the number 5 and can only locate motors with the number being a 3. Does anyone know if it will be compatible

NA Focus engine codes (VIN position 8) MK1/MK1.5:

P = SPI 2.0L(SOHC) 00-04
3 = Zetec 2.0L (DOHC) 00-04
5 = Zetec SVT 2.0L (DOHC) 02-04
Z = Duratec 2.3L (DOHC) 03-07
N = Duratec 2.0L (DOHC) 05-07

So what is the difference would the 3 still mount n run in a svt
I am not an SVT expert and am not really qualified to answer your question but I do know that although they are both Zetec engines the SVT engine is significantly different. I highly recommend you start a new thread in the SVT section of this site and ask specifically about your issues.

Good luck
Paul

It won't without changes. The vin 5 SVT engine has variable intake cam and intake manifold the vin 3 doesn't, you will pop codes. You'll be missing close to 40 hp. too.
