All worth it!
love having house, for all the reasons above.
edit: although no gun to shoot

Honestly the ONLY 'complaint' I have about living at home is not being able to randomly bring friends over or have ladies spend the night.

But I don't really need to do that all that often anyway so it's w/e

SVT conti is a solid car.

Timmeh would know what to keep an eye out for in terms of the motor.

I do know on hard right turns they can oil starve cuz of lack of baffling but I'm sure you won't be taking that hard of turns on the street.

They sound good and run healthy. I've always been a fan.

what he said.

for the starvation issue just run an extra quart of oil is the suggestion.

the 99-00's have an extra 5hp because of cam changes.

the trans is the same MTX-75 as the focus but with a different bellhousing.
