But its not a focus...








I picked her up about a month ago from Toronto. Its sitting in my garage at the moment, waiting for a 3L to be dropped in


The car in the garage on the 2nd picture is an other contour (non-svt), it has quite a bit of money dropped into it and seeing it being door to door with Mustang GT's (2002 body style) made me wanna do the 3L swap more




And the sadest thing is that I have gave up on my ZX3, I was looking forward to the v8 conversion or a turbo but things didn't work out and it is currently for sale.



My drive way looks better then ever with having 4 ford's lined up.

Depending on the year, the SVT 'Tour had 195 or 200 HP stock. 1998's had 195 and 99-00's had 200. He at least has a 1998.5 since it has the E1 style wheels
.

Looks just like my old 99 SVT with the midnight blue interior.

There are two versions of the SVT Contour, early mode3ls had 195hp, s=spoke "E0" wheels, and later the HP was bumped to 200 through some massaging and had "E1" wheels. Both versions had some of the best seats I've ever sat in in my life.

I had a 96 Contour with the 170hp 2.5L duratec. the SVT version of the Contour was a different animal altogether.

Check out contour.org to find out anything you would ever want to know and more about the car

Yeah,
I had a 2000 svtc and it was my favorite far as seats go!
wish I could say the same for the svtf I have now.

I think that is the problem with me and the focus....those seats were the best part of the svtc also liked the position of the stearing wheel, made me like the car more and the svtf the seats are the worst part and the stearing wheel is in a lame position.

Sweet ride,
Congrats

The SVTC is an awesome car. One of my friends just bought one a couple months ago. When he got it, it already had a 2.5 inch custom exhaust with Flowmasters, dropped about an inch (I think that's what he said) a nice short throw, aftermarket headunit and all stock speakers were replaced, as well as 5% tint all the way around. We took that beast out nad he opened her up to about 140! Still had more pull too, he just decided to slow it down at 140. They are great cars, I wish I could find a 2000 SVTC and snatch it up, either in addition to the Focus or I'd be willing to part with the Focus if I could find an SVTC.
