Picked up a 2005 ZX5 SES for the wife last night. Got the oil changed today, as well as new exterior lighting bulbs all the way around. She helped me detail it and wash it up today and it looks like a new car! 55,000ish miles at the moment.

Still looking for a new body kit to my 2005 ZX4 but it seams that there are not a lot to offer for this model.

First off welcome to the site and to the US if you're new here. That's pretty awesome that you were a rally driver. But moving on to your mods those sound like some good plans. Your car has the Duratec so if you want more advise on what to do next and what not with the engine head over to the Duratec Performance section. Just make sure before you go and start making a bunch of threads you do some searching and research so you know for sure you can't find the answer elsewhere.

Again, welcome to the site.

Hey, I drive a 94 Acura Integra (which is why i'm on here, right?). It's about to tank, so i'm looking into rebuilding a focus. I've been looking at different yards and what not, educating myself and getting more familiar with the vehicle. Does anyone have any advice for me? what to look for, what to be aware of? Give it to me straight. ha ha, anything would be awesome! thanks!

welcome to the site.


don't get a split port induction (SPI) motor. it has the least power.

zetec or duratec are the way to go
