2003 SVT progress thread

Well i'm finally making a progress thread for my 2003 EAP SVT, Both to share with the community and to keep track of modifications and maintenance for myself. This was a great upgrade from my 2001 ZX3. I picked her up in April 2014 with all the bells and whistles- sunroof, machs, audiophile, etc. Started with 79k and it's at 89k now.
The day I bought it-













So far I have done the following;
April- Swapped the Sony headunit out from the ZX3
May- CFM adjustable short shifter with Nerp solid shifter mounts
July- OEM SVT 6 spokes, SAP rear diffuser, Sony edition floormats, 2.5" stainless Borla catback from the ZX3. She braps!
Also traded my machs for grey ST170 headlamps at Focusfest.


In late August the clutch went so she ended up sitting a few months as I collected parts. I finally gathered everything and got the clutch done with the parts I wanted. Ended up with a Clutchmasters stage 1 clutch and aluminum flywheel, new oem bolts, slave cyl, and fluids. Just picked it up from Speedway Tuesday (5-12)

Already put a Focus Central 67mm tb in it. Not much as much of an improvement in response as the 65mm upgrade on the ZX3 but i'm still happy with it.




Also have a few other racecar goodies i'm waiting to have time to install. Harness bar is currently awaiting powdercoat.

And a couple shots with the girls together. The day after the SVT got the clutch done and the day the ZX3 sold. Oddly enough also the only time they were both running at the same time.

Now that looks good, couldn't see your pictures the first time around.

Great to have it up & rolling again!

Much better with the SVT wheels, like the 6-spokes.

Thanks guys. There's still lots to do before Focusfest. JUST missed the wheels I really wanted so the 6 spokes will stay for a bit longer

Thanks! Yeah it was missing a few pieces, including stock skirts. I can't stand these ones and I can never afford stock ones when they pop up. :/
