Start off with tastefull mods.If its the non-svt zx5 I personally would start with wheels and suspension than move into bolt on performance.Check out fswerks.com they have a ton of upgrades for the zetecs and duratecs.Also as always the best performance option for our cars are turbo kits.You can piece them together or find them on eBay.And the eBay ones aren't all bad a couple of my ff buddies have them and are still going strong I on the other hand pieced mine together the way I wanted too.

First off I wanna say what's up to everyone since this is my first post. I figured I'd hit up the MN thread first.
I just bought an 05 ZX3. No bells n whistles which is the same as having a clean slate to work with.
I bought it with a goofy dual exhaust system on it. 2 Skunk2 cans on the back. Honestly it looks ridiculous.
It does have some descent 17" Kyowa wheels on it, so it dont look like your sister's car.
Right now I'm working on aesthetics. Debadging, taking off pinstripes, blacking out the grille,and upgrading head & taillights.
As for performance mods, I don't have very deep pockets but would like to get a bit more outta this thing. Doing the stealth CAI next week.
Putting in a turbo would probably be my most wanted project but wouldn't know where to start. I suppose saving up and finding one would be a good start. I got a workspace and all the tools I could need, just no lift, and working on a creeper is just a pain in the arms n neck.

I got a lot to do before I think about that.
May even be hearing today that the company I work for is selling out.
If that happens, I wont be doing any mods anytime soon.

Yup, just heard the news. The company I work for is selling out. Now I get to sit and wait for either a new boss or a ticket to the unemployment line. All toy purchases are on hold.
