Yay, today is my first day off since... long time, over a month I guess, -> 2 jobs = no bueno.

Tho I like new job, delivery driver, cause they gave me a nice black RAM 1500 with manual transmission (and no GPS, hrhr), so I get to enjoy the driving a little now and then, when there is not much traffic around ;)
RWD is fun, in DRY weather that is... two days ago it was raining and I had a chance to discover just how huge is the difference between FWD and RWD handling in wet conditions. I was driving the truck when it was raining, and decided to accelerate while still getting our of a slight curve.... NOT cool :P I don't exactly remember what happened but I can't forget how chilling it is to find yourself in a truck running 90* degree sideways (ya it actually went that much) at 45mph...... I think I swinged the tail 4 times completely from side to side before I regained control.
Well I didn't hit anything, was just left with pain in my arms from suddenly having to rotate the wheel insanely fast, so I say that was a good lesson :P

Not an SVT header. Looks like a long tube header but not for a zetec. Should have 9 holes to bolt up to zetec head. Plus the bolt holes that are there are in the wrong locations.

I compared that pic looking at my actual SVT header sitting in my dining room lol. The bolt holes in the pic don't evenly remotely line up with the svt holes. And the should be 4 holes across the top and 5 across the bottom. Its some aftermarket crap.
