    Passenger side mounts have different bolt pattern...

    For anyone who can answer this question:

    I bought a passenger side vf mount for my svt focus and the holes don't match. The hole pattern on my 2002 SVT is two holes about 2.25" center to center of the mounting holes for the engine side. The VF mount for the 2002 SVT Focus are about 5" CC. What am I missing here?

    That is odd.

    It almost sounds like your SVT has a regular Zetec head.

    The narrow center is normal Zetec, the 5" pattern is the SVT head.

    I have considered the possibility that the head could have been swapped out but everything on the car is SVT. I didn't think that you could put one on the other without mods and the car is bone stock as far as ecu, etc. Is there any way to tell short of breaking the motor down, other than the motor mount holes?

    Is all the VCT hardware intact on the intake cam? That'd be the first place I'd look. If both cam gears look the same, then that is bad news... if they're drastically different, then that is good news.

    Pictures might be good... because this is a weird one.

    They are the same size but they don't look the same. I spoke to Ford Racing today and they said it's possible the block was swapped (I guess it's the block that the mount attaches to).

    That is true... I apologize for the space case on that.

    The mount attaches to a cast bracket which attaches to the block. Pics would definitely help...
