SVTF 03 Wrap the header.
3M headlight kit is the best IMHO

SVT513 Nice SVT! It'll be back to perfect in no time.

I g hate that rattling cat shield too, i have tried everything to fix it. I think wrapping it is the ultimate way to stop metal on metal annoyance.

Chas buy the 3m restoration kit. my headlights looked just as bad if not worse and it made a world of a difference.

Supertuner Thanks for all the good info. Sorry I've been so long getting back. Busy end of the summer.

SVT guy I am interested in that bumper. Haven't found the pm button yet. But I'll get to you.

One interesting thing I wanted ask about is the starting and starter. It seems like it takes 3-5 revolutions before the engine fires. Always fires but takes a couple turns hot or cold. Also the starter sounds weak like a low battery. But it's a new battery and always turns at the same cadence. Almost like there is a loss of fuel rail pressure between starts. Not sure if this is a natural trait or if something is amiss.

Thanks in advance.

Paladin to the OP. roll bar end links are anywhere from $) to 50 bucks. i suggest getting the moog units as they are greasable, and when maintained should last quite a long time.

i wouldnt worry too much about the radiator under tray. not may cars have them anymore.
however fender liners can be easily located.

a full replacement svt front bumper from ford i believe is around 500 bucks. and comes with the grilles and foglight brackets, and maybe the fog lamps too idk.

deffinitly take care of the brakes and tires. i suggest getting new pads and rotors all the way around, and perhaps stainless front lines.

svtfocusup im looking into a turbo for my svt. i know pro charge would better fit but dont have the money to put into it quite yet. What mods would i have to make to my block to run more boost? Im pretty sure stock on 10 pounds would be fine but, just wandering what a good combo would be? Im thinking about going a t3/t4 turbo.
