I now have twins!

After owning my SVT for the past 5 years, I have always envied the Recaros.

After really looking recently for a donor SVT to get the seats out of, I found this one on Wednesday and called the number from the craigslist ad and went to look Wednesday night then went back yesterday and bought her! (New one is on the left with CF hood)



It needs some maintenance, so I'm swapping interiors and bumpers this weekend and fixing her up in the next few weeks. Haven't decided if I'm going to resell or make winter beater yet.
My buddy has the ST3 who came with me to pick it up, thought it was funny seeing 3 blues all in a row.




Also I have picked up autocrossing recently!

As these cars age, the svt bumper is starting to look huge. Nice purchase.

Are you sure you want to swap the stuff over to the other SVT when the EAP SVT is more rarer?

My powertrain I know has been taken care of the past 5 years, this other car I'm not sure how it was treated so I'd rather have the EAPs in mine.

Yesterday went well, interiors are all swapped over along with a new fuel filter, spark plugs, and ignition wires. When taking the plugs out I noticed cylinder 1 had a fair amount of oil in it so I'm a little worried/irritated about that so a new valve cover gasket is needed but I was going to do the timing belt in the next few weeks anyway.

Also just took out the IMRC in hopes of being able to repair it with the how-to on here!
