Does the SVT have a seperate manual? Just got this car and it has the same one that our regular focus has which doesn't mention SVT in it. Just wondering as I want to change the oil and don't know what filter to get. Assuming it takes the 5w20. Also want to change the fuel filter. Thanks.

there's a supplementary owners manual for the svt. the engine take 5w30 (4.5 qts), and a motorcraft 400S oil filter. fuel filter is the same as the regular focus

The svt engine doesnt use the FL400S filter, it uses the FL2005 and uses a FG-986-B fuel filter. The FL-400-S is for the standard zetec engine.

my mistake...I keep getting them mixed up since they're physically interchangeable. the 2005 has the anti-drainback valve built into it right?

damn near all filters have the anti-drain bak valve nowadays. i believe the FL400s is a bit shorter than our FL2005's. i would run a mustang's filter if i knew the anti-drain-back valve operated at the same psi. more filter, the better.

The SVT manual says to use the FL400S, but the FL2005 also fits and is apparently recommended by Pep Boys' filter book. Of course they didn't HAVE any, so I just used an FL400S.

Maybe the very early ones said that, the newest one say Fl2005. I do believe they interchange, but Ford changed the svt's filter to the FL2005 for a reason.

When I pick up the parts I will just take whichever their computer says is right. This will be at the ford dealer.

It's entirely possible. I know mine says FL400S since I looked just before walking into the store. I would have gotten the FL2005 if they had any. I doubt it'll make that big a difference.

^^^Thanks!
Was trying to find an old link where I downloaded the supplement from, but it appears I lost it...
till you showed up on the scene. [;)]
Not sure why, but the only one available is for 2003 models. [dunno]
