the svt can be a money pit as well you know... especially if bought used (only option now a days i know) expect to be on it monthly fixing or looking for minor things to be fixed that can add up to a big headache... im not saying it breaks down easily im just saying you have to always watchout for things.

Timing belt along with all the other components is a must, if youre not sure if it was done do it anyways! spending $600-$700 in preventive maint is better than spending $3000 in a new engine.

+60k is also in the range of a new clutch, 02 sensors, tie rods etc...
