Changed the head gasket, header gaskets, lapped all my leaky valves, replaced the piston rings, put on a new timing belt, a new serpentine belt, all new pulleys, put in a new valve cover gasket, painted the valve cover, and wrapped/sealed the header. Cleaned everything up and now the SVT runs like a dream and looks pretty good too. It only took me 3 months to get it running again after it blew up.

Thanks I should have taken some pics of it before I started the cleanup project. It was a pretty nasty mix of coolant and oil everywhere.

Oh man, I was too slow for this one. Would have loved to part this out for $800 (well would have tried to negotiate for less lol) Called them and they said they sold it to a local mechanic who already had a motor apparently. I would have taken the seats and the rear bumper and sold the rest to cover my costs.

Then I also saw this one:
check out this paint job, never seen any one do this before
'02 SVT

Check out the rest of the pics on that car, its complete garbage... the dash is all screwed up from a botched radio install... ugh
I was gonna go drive it, just to see if I liked the SVTF but couldnt even bring myself to do it

Yea, I think I ended up with a decent deal... I just had never even driven one, and theyre not readily available to go check out, so I was gonna go drive that POS just to see how I like the car itself.

Turns out I just had to wait a bit longer.

Now I gotta sell my Mazdaspeed... like... QUICKLY. lol
