Those kits are LONG gone... all you can do is search/watch for one here in the classified section or on eBay. I have been looking just out of curiosity and only seen one or two kits in the last three years.
The only available kit for boosting is a DIY turbo kit from Focus-Power in NC.
You are likely only going to find the procharger option in a new box somewhere. Occasionally one of the jackson or powerworks pop up for sale...just gotta keep an eye open. Personally, the turbo is a better way to go, I sold my JRSC and installed a turbo, night and day difference in power.
IIRC, forced induction on an SVT requires reducing CR (fatter head gasket, for instance, or go all the way and swap in different pistons/rods) or you will lose a lot of tuning flexibility. And the VCT complicates tuning further. Also, any kit for SVT must come with a new IM, or you have a bigger problem... the runner seals. You basically have to scrap the original engine design to get boost, or you don't see as much gain as you would if you just built up a Zetec (stronger internals, FI cams).
These kits have been installed on two SVT Focus and both making over 320HP to the wheels. We now feel these kits are production ready. This DIY Kit fits the 2000-2004 Zetec and 2002-2004 SVT Focus What You Get: SPA Manifold 2.5 Down pipe with V-Band clamp for ease of install Waste gate down...
I am the owner of the Focus SVT shown in the posting by Rotaryrocket under the "Focus-Power - DIY Turbo Kit Info". That's my car in the under-hood photo with the Focus-Power Turbo kit installed. There's no mistaking the custom orange-painted cylinder head cover on my Competition Orange 2004 Focus SVT with the Euro package.
I'll try to make a long story short. I purchased a complete Zetec engine with the Powerworks Supercharger kit installed. The guy who sold it to me was a machinist who had done all sorts of work to the engine - new cylinder head, pistons, scissored crank, connecting rods, race cams, etc. - and I bought the engine with the Supercharger installed because, just like you, I wanted the Supercharger long after it was no longer for sale. I had a local shop take out my original SVT engine and install the engine + supercharger, but they could not finish the job.
I wound up putting the car on a flatbed and sent it to Tom Lesperance of Focus-Power - Tom's Focus Fanatics handle is 1turbofocus, and he used my Focus as the "poster child" for the installation of the Focus-Power DIY Turbo Kit. The machinist guy was a bit dishonest with me when he said that he had tuned the engine and supercharger to run on street fuel. Tom discovered that with all of the engine modifications, the set-up would require that I run race fuel all of the time due to the high compression ratio - the set-up was clearly designed only for track use, not street use. The worst part was that one of the pistons was hitting the bottom of the cylinder head, which I'm sure would have eventually caused mass descruction! Tom recommended that we keep the engine, remove all of the race parts, put back original SVT pistons, cams, crankshaft, cylinder head, etc., and install the Focus-Power turbo kit. Tom did all of the engine re-build work, uninstalled the Powerworks supercharger, and installed the turbo kit. Tom still has Powerworks supercharger, and I asked him if he would sell it for me because he is better equipped to handle shipping all of the parts.
You are welcome to contact Tom directly at focus-power.com (704-249-3745 or [email protected]), or please respond back to me if you would like to discuss with me. I would be glad for the supercharger to get a new home, but I would also be happy to talk to you about my experience working with Tom and the Focus-Power turbo kit installed on my car.
Is there good cheap replacements?
Good overall replacement?
I have the poly bushing kit but haven't got ball joints yet and haven't found a good write up on how to remove the stock riveted ball joint.
Would it be easier to get a decent price control arm and put my poly bushings in it?
Hello Focus Community,
This thread is intended to consolidate our combined knowledge about the SVT Getrag MT285 transmission information, parts suppliers, and locations for acquiring replacements units into a singular thread. Please provide your feedback and sources and I will update the first...
Hey guys, I’ve got a 02’ Focus svt with 200k. I wanna turbo the car but my plan is to buy a engine and rebuild it with a turbo and everything and drop it in. Will a duratec engine drop right in? And what transmission should I get? Or should I just buy a Zetec engine and slap an svt head on it...
I just wanted to share my experience with this particular product from Massive Speed Systems. I have purchased quite a few products from Massive and have never had a complaint until the valve cover. The valve cover itself is not the issue, (albeit mine did show up with a broken flange) but its...
