Everyone has been interested in this lately. So, here it is!
I got the SVT set-up from Jeremy at Focussalvage.com. The only thing I had to add was SVT stainless brake lines ( from TonyD. at Newedgeperformance ) , rear svt E-brake cables ( from the Ford dealer ), and brake fluid.

The rust was wire wheeled off after the pics were taken.They look fine now, no rust !!The calipers will be painted the same as the front were in a week or two!

BTW LOve the picture of Aaron getting his head squeezed between the stand and the car!

Many thanks to Aaron (lilredzx3) and Ashley (zx3chick) for all their help. They came down for the weekend and helped with the install. We barely did any work to their car this time...Time to start modding the 05 guys!!! LOL

BTW Ashley took all the pics!!

With the stainless lines and new brakes I would say it is 20-30 % better stopping with NO fade.
