My '04 SVTF

A little bit of vibration on start up and certain RPM, but only when idling. Shifts are WAY firmer and there's no ambiguity in clutch engagement.

It was pretty difficult to get the holes to line up, though. Also the bushings are physically larger so it required some soap to shimmy in.

Codi_P Replaced at 100k... I think it needs a serpentine idler though. I have a weird squealing noise... I don't think it makes it at highway speeds though (unnoticeable), so that's why it's peculiar. I'm thinking about checking out the heat shield the next time I'm under the car.

mainest Welcome Codi! Sweet SVT, cherish it, they get rarer every day. How's that timing belt assembly?

calebstubstad just curious, hasn't it been found the svt intake is the best there is for the svt? just something to look into. instead of CAI, get a drop in k&n.

Thanks for the compliments guys! I just traded for the car a little over a month ago so it's still being finessed. I know I have to polish the headlights, but there's also a squealing idler I have that needs to be addressed, along with a cat heatshield that rattles, and what I am assuming is a bad lower trans mount (1-2 shift clunk).

I do want to lightly modify it, but nothing crazy. springs/struts/shocks, tune, intake, and a removed resonator is about all I want to do with this car performance wise. As said it is a DD, I've moved down from a built car to avoid the issues they bring.

I'm also considering doing a little 3m 1080 wrap in the interior to break it up a little... EAP's interior gets really boring after a while.
Sounds like a solid plan! If the EAP interior gets too boring, I'll trade ya my blue SVT interior

Looks clean! I like the sub box, can't wait to see it finished. Your headlights need to be polished, other than that - I would not do anything else to it. Just keep it clean and simple.
