Hey. Newbie here.
I just picked up my 2003 Black Zx3 SVT tonite. European package, winter package, Loaded! I love it. I stalled it a few times on the way home, still getting used to driving a stick, but gimme time.
I do have a few questions, hoping maybe someone can point me in the right direction. I have looked over several posts but still a bit confused.
What fits an SVT? Is it the same as a Zetec? Like header/cat-back wise.
Do they make after market front grills?
I am sure I will think of more. Thanks ya'll and I hope I make some good friends in here.
Oh, by the way I am in the Kansas City area. In case anyone lives around me.

WELCOME! good luck with your svtf...
the zetec and the svt motor have different specs.. you cant swap them.. you have to get aftermarket parts esp for the svt...
welcome to FF!!

Welcome, and congrats on your new car!!! I'm sure you'll love it, even though I don't have an SVTf to compare... since you have the Euro package, check out www.european-parts.net if you want any different grilles, they've got some nice ones!

hey man welcome to the board...as it was stated they are diff engines and you DO need diff parts for it...the svts are badass though so congrats on the purchase!!! Good luck with it and have some fun...if u had a zx3 first thing I'd say was buy rims but I like the svt's rims so keep those and start elsewhere :)

Welcome to the boards!
BTW I am jealous that you have a SVTF and I don't!

I'd forget about a header - SVT comes with a really nice header from the factory.

Only had my car for 3 days and I have already mod-ed it.
Starting cheap, with apperance stuff. Preformance after the winter.
Today I got my APC clear corner/turns, from Focus Central a new aluminum antenna and billet ford emblems in black. I think it looks hella cool.

[welcome] And I hate you!! [joke] You have a beautiful car you lucky $@#*![chair] I didn't know that they even had the euro package available at the dealerships. Why oh why didn't I get an SVT....you would think I had one as much as I pay for the thing. Anyway, nice car, can't wait to see the new pics. There are tons of websites to check out, my personal fave is www.focuscentral.com and www.myfordperformance.com

u lkucky schmuck I love that car....wanna trade? ;) nah I wouldn't trade yah anyways with all the $$$$$ I put into this...well good luck man!

Ohhh, she's a beauty! Love those seats dude, and those aren't the same as the non-Euro HIDs are they? The color almost makes it look like there's signals in them... but then the grille ones are useless so I guess not.
11-02-2003, 11:16 AM
No, they have turn signals in the headlights. So this paycheck when I order new tails from European-parts.com I am also ordering a new grill. And boy oh' boy are the headlights BRIGHT!
