That's definitely the plan. If I even do it. Seems not necessary since it's already a great car.

Yeah lol. I'm reading your SVT thread right now actually. Alright well hopefully around next month I'll have both the engine mounts good to go with Polys.. So as long as someone can help me with the timing belt, it should be good pretty soon.

Well just let me know when you're not busy and we can figure out a day? I need to check the thing first. For all I know someone's done it already. Holy crap just realized it's almost 4. Time to hit the sack!

Wow you guys had an early early wee hours chit chat ... lol

And yes, as Paul stated, if you ever need some help, the Houston crew is usually up to lend a hand. All of us have begun to be focus experts ... lol Only because as a group we figure out new mechanical challenges.

Go Houston Go. Oh yea.

TheRealDeeej - about timing belt, do you have a timing belt cover in place? I'm asking because you can have a look at timing belt and see how bad it is. With that being said, you shouldn't really judge it's condition by looking at it, BUT still a good thing to do so you have kind of a feel if it can hold up to next meet or it looks like it's gonna fail the next day.
The last SVT on which Paul worked was obviously on the brink of snapping, like I mean it really could be the very next time they started the engine.


And ya SVT is a great car... what would I do with all that garage space without it ? :P
like someone said it earlier, owning SVT is like having a baby - there is always something...
