My 2001 ZX3 - Montreal, Canada

Hi,

I've been browsing for a long time and have just now decided to make a thread with a little introduction and info.

Essentially, I have a 2001 ZX3, Zetec MTX which was my daily driver up until recently. It's fairly clean for an almost 13 year old car from Quebec and runs great. It's even still on the original clutch and this is with 203,000KM's (126,000-ish miles) of spirited driving!

Now that it's been retired from daily driver service, my plan is to make this a more nimble weekend car. Any suggestions or recommendations are greatly appreciated! I'd like to keep it NA at least for the next couple years.

Mods list includes...
-Drop 1.8" with Eibach springs.
-Magnaflow catback with matching diameter custom flexpipe.
-Underdrive pulleys.
-Ported throttle-body
-Front STB

Here are some pretty awful phone pics for now...

You got to decide weather you want NA or boost as well for people to help with your mods

JohnPatrick: You said you're in the process of rebuilding yours... What do you have planned?
