the SVT exhaust is the #1 most recommended modification to the Zetec followed by intake and cat back and a Tune. personally I would not put a penny into an exhaust system that was not the SVT conversion. Needing a new cat would be the push to do the conversion.
Yeah thats why im gonna think about it.. as for the seats ive always wanted SVT seats and saw some for sale under the parts section.. im hope they can ship them they were red inserts for $200 not including shipping and the car only had 65K on it. if that doesnt work out i will keep looking.

Do you happen to know if the swap with the SVT seats is easy process? not including any wiring because the SVT are powered. therefore it is not mandatory to have power to them

Dont know on that. I think its fairly straight forward. I know there are some tricks to the back seats I think, but the fronts are fairly straight forward....

I also want to get the SVT seats to fix the fact my levers on my front seats broke and took the porous crappy cast of a mounting feature along with them. Have never looked enough at it to figure out how to fix that yet either... need a motor in it first.
