The Orange SVT only has 78K miles...

The thing is, I'd rather have to spend some $ fixing the engine of a loaded SVT than one of a stripped zx3.

I felt like I was spending a bunch of money on a car that would NEVER be equal (or close) to a SVT in power or amenities (or looks).

the orange one is an 03... that should be fine. EAP is just the headlights, wheels and seats, the drive line is the same as other SVTF years. my car will be at 78K in no time... just get the service history as there are a few things that will need to have been addressed by that age. how much are they asking?

I just replaced the clutch master cylendar, brakes all the way around and got a check engine light about an o2 sensor going out. normal stuff at 60K. stock clutch still feels good!

Scott,

if you want performance ideas talk to kyle about JayRacing HFC's & ORP's. He talked them into making a few for a group buy.

Ok, got more pix of the Orange EAP... I don't know if the fact that it has a rear brace makes me happy or worried! Please let me know what you guys think. Stivo, price is $6,900.

I like the rear strut brace... I'm worried that whoever owned this car previously drove this car as hard as I'm planning to... That's what worries me

I asked them for a pic of the engine compartment to see what goodies may lie in there!

Just got it... Looks stock 2 me:
