Energyblue98 lol thanks for that random comment...

If you'll notice. The car is on an incline, and crappy scissor jacks tend to fall over on their side quite easily. This is why the jack is in that direction. Believe me, I didn't want to have to try to jack up that pos facing that way but I had to. It was one of my parts cars anyway, I didn't give a crap (you'll notice the rust, there were practically no rocker panels left). I think that was back in 08 or 09.

but thanks for that tip...? I guess you're looking out for my safety?

150mphzetec jack is being used incorrectly here, it is supposed to have the cranking part of it pointing outward away from the car and the rocker panel rails are supposed to fit into the groove of the jack. The way you have it here it can slide off the jack and end in disaster

SlickWilly My best friend drives a 98 Black ZX2. It has a hot shot intake,header,short throw, side exit exhaust, pulley. Its also lowered about the same height as you on 17x7 gloss black rims. With the dark tint the car is sharp. Which began my love for these little cars. I really wish I had one to put around in. Great build, I really like that turbo mani!

Energyblue98 So I still haven't updated this... There's a lot of pictures that I need to add to catch up from the last picture to where it is now -which is about a full year.

But just as a teaser, my girlfriend took some pictures of my car yesterday and she will be doing HDR edits on them.

This picture is unedited- but awesome.

nrayome04svtF Very nice build. Pretty respectable dyno #'s too. My mom had a red ZX2 it was a nice car I wish I had bought it from her when she sold it back in the day.

USARice My favorite car of all time (actually I owned 3 of them plus 1 Ford variant) was my tRacer LTS. All were DOHC BP 5spd and I dreamed of dropping in the 210hp GTX motor in one but the all got that wonderful salt belt cancer. Thanks for bringing back some good memories. :)

Sully313 I thought it was more like ~2000 total units but still a very small amount. I only found 1 in 6 months of looking, in Cali, in red and they didn't know what the S/R was. Price was good but by the time I got it back here, I could have a nice SVT.

I'm still looking out for one from time to time. I've developed a bit of a car crush on them.

Energyblue98 ^ that's because they only made 500 of them back in 99-00
