i'm in for stock E0 calipers if this will happen.

what's the status on fitment inside E0 wheels?
anyone test fit?

if this doesn't happen soon, i'll just shell out for the FSVT calipers and then i'll test fit my E0 (winter) wheels...

thanks for any and all effort on this whole upgrade. i love it.

I'm interested in this too. I converted to E1 SVT years ago and they are starting to look small. Has anyone actually compared a FSVT and a Tour rotor side by each? Is hat height the same? Are they the same thickness? What about the center hole for the hub? There could be other diffs than diameter.

If you had paid some attention to the discussion you would know this stuff.


The rotor offset is ~3mm different. Contour and focus as well as several other vehicles (including the venerable XR4Ti) are hubcentric to the same diameter. And Rotor thickness is either the same or not different enough to matter.

The bottom line is that for now, there will be no adapters available. There simply isn't enough room to get everyhting bolted together. I will continue to work on it as I have time in hopes of coming up with something, but don't hold your breath.

Would it be any easier to work on an adapter from plain Tour 260mm rotors, instead of SVT 278mm ones? Maybe that would be more doable, and maybe even more potential buyers.

Unless there is a difference in knuckles that I don't know of you're in for the same problem. You're not adapting the rotors as much as you are adapting the caliper to fit the knuckle and its increase in dia. All this moving a caliper outward on r by only a marginal amount just doesn't work.

A couple of us know why, the rest, please take our word for it.

Has there been an update on this at all? Or did I just miss it.

Im going to maintain my stance that the most straightforward, and easiest thing to do is just buy the SVT Focus rotors and calipers. With the core exchange that bill jenkins will give you on your old svt calipers, the total cost is $360. Can't beat that.

Can anyone post pics of the svt rotors vs the focus rotors. I just cant seem to picture the size difference.
