I just bought a 02 svt focus and i was looking for some upgrades for it. i was going to buy the steeda short ram air intake, but before i buy it i want to know from you guys what is the best intake out there.
I'll agree, the first thing I bought was the Steeda Intake although it sounded awesome and gave a few horses in the mid to higher RPM range, it wasnt anything significant, However for $150, id recommend it. But, The Tuner is a good buy I bought that third and have not been dissapointed, helps with surging, bogging down, and smoothing out the RPM's. Plus Tom is pretty helpful. I;d say go witha tune and if your not going to go boosted, buy a CAI with a BPV and then a HFC and if you still want a little more, a 67mm TB and then Pullies and maybe a New Exhaust system if your not happy with the way the stock one sounds ( I replaced mine with Borla and everyone I know has compliment on it! It sounds amazing!) And dont you love all those abbreviations I used? lol
What ever you do, do not change or replace out the header. It has been designed for max performance already so anything else you put on will probably bring down the performance. This is true regardless of what some people like to believe.
Both of these lists are great choice. One thing to note. Don't expect massive power from an SVT without F/I. With these mods listed you could be up around 155-160whp but also have an incredible driving machine. Good luck man [thumb]
Hello, long time looker and first time poster.
I have a 03 SVTF 5 door - infared :love:
I’ve owned this car for a year and like most people are, I am having problems finding parts. So I don’t know if this is copaceticbut I wanted to make a thread with random questions about the SVTF.
My Son's Upper Intake Manifold blew apart during a massive engine backfire during the 2018-19 Winter Polar Vortex. We found the upper intake manifold, but now also need the lower intake, as the lower mounting bracket is damaged as well. Does anyone have one for sale or know where to locate...
Continuation of previous post. Found a vacuum leak at the imrc acuator lever. Beneath the throttle body. It’s actually where the cable from the imrc module connects. Anybody know anything about this? Not sure what seals the shaft that runs thru the manifold. Any help? First 2 photos are at imrc...
has anyone ever used the Spyder Blue Intake? i looks similar to the AEM one but is only $55. the filter it's self is probably junk but everything else looks similar. MAF hook-up and what not look to be all there.
for this price it may be worth a shot.
I am looking into buying a second hand CD Silver 2004 SVT Focus with 158,000 miles on the Odometer. Comes with the Black Leather Recaro seats, brand new clutch and newly inspected. I'm coming from an 2002 Focus Sedan Zetec. I was just curious on some common issues i should check out...
