Well didn't get the suspension put on since we didn't have spring compressors but we did figure out how to install a duratec acc belt. FYI it's stupid easy

Congratulations though I more agree with Chris on this lol meh. Don't be getting married if it's just because you have kids, and think long and hard. If I had to do it all over again I'd wouldn't be married that's for sure. Of course now that it's been so long I think I have Stockholm Syndrome

My wedding anniversary is on July 31st coming up on 9 years.

Guess who got their tax return in?!

<------This guy!


Going on a part ordering spree tonight and the following nights. I plan to have the SVT back up and running with two weeks tops.


Getting the following parts

Clutch kit (probably going with a stock one with the flywheel)
Light weight flywheel if I can find one if not then stock that comes with the kit
T-belt kit
water pump
Struts and Shocks (probably go with the AGX's or Koni's)
Tires


Parts already acquired or on the way

Stock intake box and K&N air filter
Stock bored out TB with modified TB blade (found on ebay figured I give it a shot since it was only 50 bucks and no one wanted it, was listed 3 times and looks to be good, more info when it comes in)

We did our as soon as we got it which was on the 17th if I remember right. We were then told it wouldn't process till the 31st like everyone else. Then we got a notice saying it was processed but we might not get the return till the 21st. Woke up to today and my wife said it was in the bank

I'm just very happy we got it this soon. Really can't wait to start driving the SVT again, plus paying off all the bills lol but mainly the SVT will be back in 100% working condition with no problems. Looking at flywheels right now for it. I may be able to buy a flywheel and then put a stock clutch on it and still come out for roughly the same price as a stock clutch kit all together.
