FocusedOnSVT Update, my SVT successfully had the engine swapped. 177k on the body, 110k on the engine

ThaKillerKlown My new to me 2002 SVTF has 181,500 on it. Just got a new timing belt, water pump, rear main seal, valve cover and several other goodies. Runs like a champ!
Today 03:31 PM
SuperStockAMX 153,750 and climbing although engine rebuild at 130,000 due to failed fuel pump at "excessive" speed. Before the pump failed, it ran great. Probably would not needed rebuild on original engine had I not had an overly long stretch of road in front of me!
Original trans has no issues whatsoever.

amawds Just about to roll over 100k. Small lot dealer I bought it from got it in a trade with a bad clutch among other things. They replaced the clutch. Bought it knowing it had no stereo on the right channel, pulsing brakes, lame exhaust and a few other small things. Almost the day of purchase the driver front wheel bearing started growling. Brakes done, wheel bearing done, new touch screen stereo installed that fixed the dead speakers, will need to replace one stock wheel that has a chunk of lip removed from a bad curb, and it'll be a good daily. Pleasantly surprised that it consumes absolutely no oil and the oil after 2k of pretty hard driving still looks brand new. Indicates no sludge build up, which likely means it's been running synthetic for a very long time or has had the oil changed very very often, or both.

Sebem777 02 SVT here with 123k only thing wrong right now is a broken front wheel bearing and an 02 sensor still performs incredibly.

Timing belt wasn't too bad, just make sure you've got the cam shaft clamped down pretty good. Don't use the timing bar to hold the shaft when loosening the cams!

earth2eli 03 svt just hit 199,000 and still running like a champ! I bought it pretty high, just replaced the tbelt, running with royal purple. No major problems to report

-Also wanted to add, I had some minor mechanical experience before this car, but I've definitely been hitting the books hard when I bought this. After hearing dealership horror stories, I definitely wanted to learn this car and do all the work on it myself.

FocusedOnSVT I had 176,6XX on my SVT...then the engine blew a piston...or something like

Putting an 80k mile engine in within the next month. In the meantime, I've got a LOT of body and rust work I could take care of.

There was no way I was letting this thing go to the scrapyard.
