2000 ZX3 5spd..I bought new for $13,800 out the door...

Replaced suspension with SVT at 180,000. Car was sagging so bad the SVT suspension actually raised the car an 1" LOL!
SVT Exhaust with headers
Rebuilt alternator
8 sets of rear drums cause bearings suck!
Scan Gauge II shows 38-40mpg city/highway driving
Replaced timing belt once at 130K...wont do it again. If the motor goes its goes I have had my use out of the car.
2 Fuel pump failures under warranty.
Tie rod ends/
Valve cover gasket x 2.
Coil pack x 2
Plugs / wires x 2

I do all my own maintenance and am real anal about noises. As soon as I hear something odd, Im all over it fixing it right away.

Only thing broken is E brake and Air bag light on all the time.

Showing some rad fluid coming from the weep hole in the back exhuast can...guessing head gasket worn. Been doing for a longtime and hasnt gotten worse.

AWESOME reliability!

I bought my 2000 ZX3 in '04 with 52,000 or so miles and I just turned 100,000. If everything goes well, it'll be boosted and tuned tomorrow. We'll see how it holds up from there.
00 ZX3 DD now with over 100K miles
Old turbo: 14b @ 9ish psi: 182.93whp, 188.57wtq (blown seals)
Chinese 16G @ 7psi: 180.62whp 193.6wtq (died at 5,000 rpms)
DSM T25 at 13 psi coming soon (third time's a charm, right?)

01 ZX3 S2.
102,500 miles.

Haven't replaced the timing yet (getting ready to). Same with serpentine.

I replaced the fuel pump about 8 months ago and I think a hose popped off because it leaks fuel when I prime the pump. Needless to say it's just sitting there till tomorrow when I get the extreme pleasure of dropping the tank.

Closing in on 120k and boosted.

I have had a few minor issues, bust dsi lever, replaced fuel pump....other than that, its just been replacing general wear and tear items with upgrades. For example, busted DSI lever....get a JRSC, lol.
