I was wondering if there are any non-focus t/b that will work on the focus. My buddy said that alot of parts can be switched from one model to another. Like a SVO Taurus T/B that would be bigger that I can pick up at a junk yard. I dont want to pay 280+ for a Focus Central one. Just trying to save some bucks. Let me know if any has done this or even heard of this. Thanks! You guys rock on this forum.[thumb]

if you can find one to work with the tps and make a custom spacer to adapt the two together, go ahead....but unless its a newer style tb, i doubt that will work.

Ya I thought since the Focus is so new it might not work. Has any heard of any one doing this?

SVO Taurus? You mean the Yamaha SHO? I think all the Taurus engines including the SHO had the throttle body connected to the intake manifold. I don't know if you could just bolt on a bigger one just like that.....you're gonna have to double check on that but I know my 3.0 Vulcan couldn't just be unbolted. The Vulcan Gen3's 96-99 I believe could be bolted off.....don't know about Gen 4. Either way most Taurus motors had small throttle bodies....probably even the SHO.

Thanks guys. Looks like I will be getting the FC t/b. Sorry about the SVO/SHO thing. I am a Mustang guy and I slipped up.
