She's definitely being lowered when I get the money together, and the hood is carbon fiber. I knew the sideskirts were non-existent lol, but I feel I got a good deal on the car. As for the tints, I live in CT and I can't go too dark so I was thinking just leave it stock but I'm still unsure. I'll post more pictures in a little bit.

Welcome to FF. I see why you got it so cheap. Looks like it needs some TLC. But you can easily bring her back to life with some time, money, effort..

And if need be, overnight parts from Japan.

Check the catpipes heat shield, check the headers heat shield. The bolts and metal around it rusts out and they vibrate. Jack up the car, get on ur back and shake the heat shields with ur hand, they should move all over the place. Also its a dualmass flywheel clutch, they tend to be loud u will hear chatter and rattling.

U prob need a tune up too! How many miles?

Timing belt and componets replaced asap!!!! serp belt, plugs, water pump, valve cover gasket etc

She does need some good lovin' lol. She just hit 118,000 miles. I ordered a new head gasket which should be coming in today. There's also a loud squeaking coming from under the hood now which from what I heard could be the water pump. Thanks for the help though guys! All much appreciated.

head gasket? if you're taking the head off replace the timing belt and pulleys while you're there. Plan on doing the work yourself or having a shop do it?

Lol no sorry, i meant to say valve cover gasket.

Also, even experienced mechanics have messed a timing belt change in svts. My advise if u never done thise before dont practice on this car. Have it done prof by someone that has done this before

Ull need a cam locking plate and pin and even with this it is possible to mess up the engines timing. Many threads on this, i have one too.
