Just got a 2002 svt, looking for some help.

Hello everyone. Im new to the forums and a new owner of a 2002 ford focus svt. Dont know much about cars but would like to start to build this one up. Other than intake I believe its stock. Im looking to buy parts a little at a time do to budget. Was hoping for suggestions on parts and good place to get them. I have a mechanic to do the work but dont want to pay him to find all the parts and such. I know I have to do the valves on the car do to the sound its making. The car has high milage 205k. Any guidance would be awsome. Also im advance I apologize if I ask any questions you guys might find dumb, but like I said Im new to tooning a car as this will be my first. Thanks in advance!

Like stated , change that timing belt , idlers , then have your mechanic check valve clearances as the buckets are how the valves are adjusted and you dont have to change the valves
Best mods are
Tune which I can help you with
TB
drop in filter
off road pipe
2.5 or 3 inch Exh I would do the 3 inch
