To get an SVT focus running high 13s? low 14s? NA
Agreed. You're looking to save weight in every area of the car possible. NA is quite costly when trying to achieve a good hp per dollar ratio. Figure in a good engine rebuild, replacing the 6 speed tranny with a standard Zetec 5-speed or automatic and a good stand alone management system with probably get you into the 13 sec realm.spend 40 grand and yes a turbo or supercharger will get you there quick.
Natural Aspiration well you could easily obtain 14's with bolt ons but for high 13's you are looking at a lot of weight reduction.

Uh... yes, there have been a few people who HAVE done this - bolting the MTX-75 tranny into a SVT as well as throwing a Getrag into a non SVT focus...No, they won't bolt up to each other.
