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 that...lol.

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.
