Thanks for this build thread man. I really miss my ZX2. I had a 2000 for quite a while. When you have kids and your wife wants something bigger than a 2 door, tough decisions have to be made. After owning 33 cars before age 26, I would say the ZX2 is the one I miss the most.

old cut springs compared to brand new ground controls






I've done the Rear disk swap (8/17/12)


the long bolt proved to be a big pain... had to get new bolts and cut the old ones


the finished product



September 8th, i went to have a custom header and downpipe made, as the current header had cracked through, after already fixing it once. had to get one with a good thick high grade metal professionally tig welded at a fabrication shop.

old header, cracked through


new header metal pieces.


size difference of new header material


in progress.



saw this sticker on his toolbox, had to post this.


and the finished product!

Looks great so far. Looks like you have a lot of time and money into it. My buddy just got a ZX2, so i'm interested to see what can be done to these.

Nice... I was looking looking for a ZX2 S/R but I couldn't find one that wasn't red at the time. I ended up getting a Red Focus SVT anyway.
