SVTF 03, that is an omnispeed tuning battery mount. i got mine used off the classifieds on FJ if you contact them by email they may be able to build one for you. here is their link as for the battery i got the highest rated one that would fit from braille. it works perfect as long as you use your car at least once a day. if your going to let it sit for a while throw it on a trickle charger.

BMW, doing it this way took us about an hour and a half. your car may take longer. especially if you need to battle rusty rear shock bolts and swaybar endlinks. remember heat is your friend for pulling old bolts, and anti-seize the crap out of what gets put back in.

stealth, its 50% front and 40% rear.

Antisieze is like a kind of grease, that usually is applied with a brush that crimes in the cap. You brush on some of the grease on the bolts before putting back in. If you ever take that bolt back out, itll come out with ease. Its stops bolts from seizing, hence the name anti seize. Stuff is amazing, if you get a good kind of brand.

I have A TON of anti seize, if you do not use it you will be doomed if you take anything apart a lot. I would suggest using it on about every single cheap bolt ford ever put on the car. :D

the springs are from a saleen eibach kit yes. but they arent as horrid as you'd think. the koni oranges and my saleen swaybars are paired pretty nicely, its a firm ride but its not so jarring that it sucks to take long trips. there may be air in my future once i find another job though. we shall see.

small update, no photo's however. i met up with Lanting90 and we swapped off road pipe for cat. his car ended up being the one fighting us. which was odd. but we got it done, on a side not an svt wit horp and lunchbox chopped sounds perfect. for some reason mike's car has a resonator in his center section, but its a ford stamped piece. eitehr way its jsut enoug hsnort you can hear it in teh car. but not so much it over powers anything.

shpuld also note my car is significantly quieter as well. so now i ca nstart it up at night and not piss off the neighbors.

real good. a bit stiff and it'll start sliping if your in a traffic jam for over a half hour. but other than that no complaints.
