Yea, I have a guy that was the SVO guy at ford back in the day that works on my SVO. He's kept up with the SVTs since they changed titles. So, i'll let him do it. Thanks everybody!

CCM302 Anybody got an idea of how many days it takes in a shop? I probably could do it, but I really don't want to screw it up seeing as how the damage would be astronomically higher in cost than the cost of the belt and install...or at least it seems that way to me.

jjones6116 You should change it...

StephenElsbree1986 If you can do it yourself yes! Belt can go out to age but I think the tensioner and pullye actually do wear of age faster.

New timing belt or no?

I just picked up a '02 SVTF. It only has 41k miles but it is, obviously, 10 years old and the t-belt has not been changed. Should I go ahead and have it changed or no? It's basically been in and out of storage for most of its life.
