FreeFlyte 2003 ZX3 Mod Thread

Hey all,

I've been wanting to make a thread for all the mods I've done/been doing on my 03 ZY ZX3, and figured its about time.

Little backstory,

I bought her last year (actually right around this time) from the original owner. 64k Miles on the clock, interior was in amazing condition, the body was a strong 8/10. Unfortunately they left love bugs on the bumper and it etched into the paint. The rear bumper had some fade on the top. Otherwise great shape.

Here's the first pic i took after bringing her back home.

Oddly enough, it came from the factory with the full SVT sound system, Sub & amp, head unit, front and rear speakers. No power locks/window (which wasn't that big a deal for me) Also came with 5% tint all around (Crazy right?)

Only downside was that it's autotragic, but for the price I paid, miles and condition I couldn't pass it up.

Mods time!

First thing i did was rip the cat pipe out and replaced it with a test pipe. Not sure of the brand, got it from a friend.

Also deleted the EGR as well. Used the "trick" method to remove the CEL. Works just fine to this day, no code.

ooooh nice things to come. Got tired of the stock 4x4 suspension. Time for low.

Tein S-Tech springs, 2.3 avg drop. Super happy with them. Currently still on stock dampers (been about 9 months now) and rides just fine. Soon I would like to throw some Koni yellows on there.

had an issue with my fans not coming on unless my A/C was on. After chasing fuses and relays, the culprit turned out to be the resistor. Got a new one with the pigtail.
