Westridge Buick 2003 Ford Focus SVT
Westridge is excited to present this 2003 Ford Focus SVT
APPEARANCE: The SVT Focus takes an understated European
approach to contemporary sport compact styling, with no lurid
graphics or giant wings. Stealth is good. At a glance, it appears to
be just another Focus hatchback. Look closer to see the flat ``air
dam'' front fascia, with inset foglamps, and smoked headlight
coverings at the front. Flared rocker panels are found at the sides of
the three-door model, but not the five-door. Both have a ``diffuser-
look'' rear fascia, an oversize Exhaust tip, and a small ducktail
spoiler at the rear edge of the roof.
COMFORT: Like the regular ZX3 or ZX5, the SVT Focus has a
remarkable amount of interior for its small size. Four normal people
will fit, more easily in the five-door, with its better rear-seat access.
The SVT interior is of the same basic design as that of a ZX3 or
ZX5, but upgraded. It's made for driving, with the correct position
easily attainable by drivers of any size. The supportive front sports
seats have a grippy cloth center section and leather-trimmed side
bolsters, the steering wheel has a thick, contoured, comfortably
graspable rim and is adjustable for both tilt and reach. The pedals
have contemporary aluminum and rubber trim; more importantly,
they are correctly placed for easy heel-and-toe shifting. Shift action
is slick and smooth. The instrument panel features black-on-silver
instruments with SVT badging. The rear seat has the same cloth as
the front, but vinyl replaces leather. It is split 60/40 for extra cargo
ability, but the trunk area, protected from view by an integrated
cover, is larger than that of some other popular hatchbacks.
SAFETY: The SVT Focus has Ford's ``Personal Safety
System''(tm), which includes an electronic crash severity sensor,
dual-stage front air bags, and front safety belt sensors and energy
ROADABILITY: SVT has increased the spring rates 10 percent at
the front and 20 percent at the rear compared to the standard
Focus, retuned the shocks for better roll damping, and increased the
diameter of the front stabilizer bar. The result is agile handling with
good turn-in and grip, and good ride comfort even with 215/45
WR17 tires. Only the most hard-core enthusiast or serious
autocrosser would want to stiffen it further.
PERFORMANCE: Tuning 1A: The 2.0-liter Zetec block gets
improved gas flow, stiffer valve springs, variable valve timing on
the intake camshaft, and a dual-stage intake manifold. Lightweight,
high-compression pistons further increase power, while forged steel
connecting rods help ensure engine integrity. The result is peak 170
hp at 7,000 rpm and 145 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm, but raw specs
don't even begin to tell the story. This little gem has major torque,
unlike many of its competitors. It's good right off idle and very,
very strong in the midrange, right where it is most useful in any sort
of driving from city traffic to competition. That, and the smooth
six-speed gearbox, mean that the SVT Focus is easy and fun to
drive just about anywhere. As a bonus, fuel economy is good and
emissions are low.
CONCLUSIONS: Ford's SVT tuning wizards have taken the
already enjoyable Focus hatchback and made into a true pocket
rocket, with no loss of civilized comfort or everyday usability.

2015 Focus ST Upgrades
A few weeks ago the Sykes family purchased a brand new 2015 Focus ST. Erin
Sykes, the owner of the car, has been such a big fan of our install videos,
she contacted us about what modifications to do to her car first. Since we
have been looking to get our hands on the new 2015 Focus ST, we invited
the family up to let us take a look at her car and install some of the
parts for her, just to make sure they fit as well as they did on the
The Sykes were so excited they ordered almost every COBB part we offer for
the Focus, a front mount Intercooler, cat-back Exhaust, downpipe, shifter plate, sound symposer
delete and an Accessport V3 Tuner. Additionally, they wanted turboSmart's blow off valve, CPC's hood strut kit,
Agency Power's shorty antenna and MGP's caliper covers.
Once the car was here, Bill and the tech team went straight to work
installing all the parts they ordered. When we were finished the Sykes
returned, Bill went out for a test drive with William, who has driven the
car the most, to get is first impressions of the upgrades. William could
not get over how much better the ST drove and sounded, from the minute they
hit the road he could feel the difference in handling. Overall the Sykes
family were happy with the results and look forward to making a few more
upgrades in the future.
