By the way. If anyone is close to Bessemer City. I have tools but no garage. I will help out with normal mods if anyone needs it. I mean face it there is only so much you can do in the driveway, but I will help. Intakes, throttlebodies, thermostat etc.

Well, for the SVT, I've got a euro R/S collection front bumper and RS wing that need to be painted and installed along with the upper euro grille and blacked out Mach's. I've got some interior pieces to install and a couple of "projects" that I want to save as surprises.

I've got to get an alignment after putting the Racecraft suspension on the ZX3, and I've also got to get some tires put on the Exel wheels that I bought. After that, it's painting/installing the SVT body kit, installing the Mach's, installing the complete audiophile setup and hooking up the power windows & power/heated mirrors.

It's going to take a while, but it'll be worth it in the end.

Get a Steeda Short Throw for it. I think 139 through cfm with free shipping. Makes the car a lot more fun to drive.

Right now I'm saving up for 2.5in Magnaflow exhaust with hi-flo cat. I'm about half way there right now.

Go with either Steeda or Ford racing. Steeda is 139.95 and the Ford Racing is 124.95 on CFM. And both are exactly the same. But on the Steeda you get free shipping. The ford racing one with shipping is about 137. So you can save a buck or two. Or if you wanted to you can look on here, to cut your stock shifter. And if you don't like it after cutting your stock shifter, you can have my old one.
