2000 ZX3 Build by Devin761

Hey guys. I recently picked up a 2000 ZX3 and being a mechanic, I simply cant leave my cars alone. Here's the build at about 3 weeks in. If anyone has suggestions, I would love to hear them since up to this point, I've only built euros (you know... stance nation and all that jazz). It's a nice change of pace to mod a domestic and I'm finding that it's a hell of a lot easier.

Build as of 3/20/2014:

2000 Ford Focus ZX3 2.0l Zetec (Sangria Red)
Volant Cool-Air Intake
MSD Blaster Coil Pack
MSD 8.5mm Plug Wires
NGK Iridium Spark Plugs (Can't Remember gapping will update if anyone's interested)
Magnaflow Flex-Back Exhaust
Ford Racing SVT Suspension Kit (1/2" Drop from factory)
Energy Suspension Poly Rear Sway Bar Bushings
SVT Euro Dark Argent 17x7 Wheels
Dunlop Direzza D101 215/45R17 84W Tires

I know it's not much yet, but I've only had it for 3-4 weeks at this point and I have big plans for it. My main goal for this build is to maintain driveability for use as a daily, but still throw down decent times at autocross events. Like I said, I'm open to suggestions since I'm new to the domestic scene. Here's some of my plans for this build:

Ford Racing Head,
Steel Head Gasket,
ARP Studs,
Mild Cam,
Forged Pistons & Rods,
SVT Header,
CAT Delete,
O2 Delete,
EGR Delete,
MTX-75 Swap,
Short Throw Shifter,
Stage II Clutch,
Lightweight Flywheel,
Torsen LSD,
Custom Skid Plate,
Upgraded Custom Cooling System (Oil Cooler, Upgraded Radiator, Fan, ETC.), Oil Filter Relocate,
Upgraded Injectors,
Upgraded Fuel Pump,
Jackson Racing Supercharger (Eaton),
Custom Tune,
Custom Tubular Control Arms,
Timken Bearings,
Dual Piston Calipers in the front,
Single Piston Calipers in the rear (currently has useless drums)
EBC Cross-drilled & Slotted Rotors all 4 corners,
EBC Racing Brake Pads,
Rally Armor Mud Flaps,
Recaro Front Seats,
Momo Steering Wheel
