There's a SVT with the blown head gasket in Walnut Creek. Buy that and fix it then sell your car

As long as its the same or newer model year motor you can get it bar'd. The hardest thing is going to be doing a 100% swap over on your car. Unless you found a 00 or 01 Zetec, you have to change almost everything in the car.

If I wasn't a Fanatic before, I can say I am now!
I've already swapped rims and the springs are scheduled for this week.
From newb to Fanatic in 8 months! Woohoo!

I just bought the grey one. It was on CL. He was selling for $4500 but I offered him $3500. He initially said no but 3 weeks later, out of the blue, he calls me up wanting to sell it for $3500.

I'm gonna take all the stuff I want off it and install on mine: EAP rims, TEIN springs, upper stress bar, 12" Kicker subwoofer and two amps, maybe the hood (I'm looking to sell it but it's starting to grow on me) and finally a manual tranny swap (my wife is currently against the swap, but I'll win her over. I see Tiffany's in her future.).

After I take what I want, I'm replacing the rest of the aftermarket stuff (K&N Typhoon intake and a cat back exhaust I haven't looked at yet) with stock components. I'll sell the intake and exhaust then sell the car as a stock ZX3 to maximize the return on my investment. I should essentially get all this stuff installed on my car for free.

Thanks Chris and Gerald for showing me all the suspension stuff and for letting me help out with (I mean watch while drinking) the SVT engine and tranny install. I wouldn't be able to do these installs without that experience.
