My ZX3

My ZX3 experience.

2002 ZX3 "premium"?

"twilight blue"

Problems & Issues: Fixed
  • vacuum tube behind the intake
  • thermostat housing and various cooling hoses
  • valve cover gasket
  • dpfe - no more CEL and crappy mileage
  • passenger motor mount (broke during clutch replacement?)
  • ignition cylinder (got it out and removed the tumblers)
  • a battery
  • a serpentine belt
  • e-brake handle
  • right mirror (mailbox)
  • clutch

Problems & Issues: Pending
  • tie rod ends(in+out)/ball joints/end links - parts on hand for this weekend
  • brakes - pinched a hard line during clutch install
  • brakes - svt upgrade?/ss lines?
  • wheel bearings/hubs all around
  • clutch master cylinder - leaking

Upgrades: Done
  • Centerforce Clutch
  • Fidanzia Aluminum Flywheel
  • FocusSport Cat Back
  • FocusSport Cool Flo Filter and Shield
  • FocusSport Plug Wires
  • SVT Suspension

Upgrades: Pending
  • Disc Brake Kit
