the svt is gonan be the best bang for the buck, but it requires 91 octane only so if you dont like paying at the pump you might not like the svt and also the svt doesnt respond well to mods due to its near as good as it gets

the roush is just a body kit, looks good, not sure which motor it has but if its the duratec thatll do great with mods cai and exhuast net it near 20hp

the white zx5 is a good deal, low miles and its fully loaded

its a hard choice me, id take the roush cuz its more rare but i do love the svts! and that svt has low miles

That particular SVT is over-priced IMO. You can find others with that low of mileage for $2k less than that, especially since it is a non-EAP one.

I voted for the Roush, just because I know it has the 2.3L in it, so you will have a greater ability to modify it in the future, with even just bolt-ons.

Not knowing which motor the ZX5 has, it could be a good deal if it also has the 2.3L, but if it is a Zetec, it too is slightly over-priced, again, IMO.

Are you sure the 2004 Roush has a D23 in it? I know there are a few Eco friendly D23s out there, but I know the Roush is all cosmetic.

SVT for the win. I think it is an all around better car. And since Ford does not make them any more, they will be harder and harder to find in the Future.

Every '04 Roush I've seen has had the 2.3L PZEV, which, aside from the extra emissions crap, is the same motor as the 2.3L Duratec.

I say the svt but the price is a little high but the miles are low. The roush is ready for nos if you are into that thing. Find a zx5 svt then you can get 2 of the cars you want :)

You have the Roush confused with the Saleen. The Saleen comes ready for NOS not the Roush. I voted for the SVT. That is a good price for that little of miles. Low milage SVT are getting rarer ,therefore the prices are going up.
