My 2001 ZX3 (Malibu Blue)
 
Hey what's up everyone, My name is Tom and I just bought a 2001 ZX3 (Malibu Blue). So far within the first week of owning it I have done a handful of mods to the car. K&N Typhoon intake (to replace the hokey "Home Depot Special" the previous owner thought was apparently a wise idea), MSD coil, Massive wires, Autolite XR plugs, and a few body mods such as clear grille lights, smoked markers,LED high mount stop lamp,and 4300k HID's. The previous owner did a 2 1/2" cat back on the car which sounds nice and mellow and some god awful 2" drop springs (that make the car handle like shopping cart going 100mph) and a B&M shifter. The car is currently sitting on the stock 16"s which I want to eventually upgrade to a set of 17"s.
I've been looking for a ZX3 for awhile but came across allot of ratty looking ones and then stumbled on this one for a good price.

Here's a couple of pics

Thanks! I have a few other things I am gonna do in the next couple of weeks such as 2002 SVT headlights, new springs and struts, 65mm throttle body and a MAC header. Also when I do the timing belt I'm thinking about doing cams.
