Pumpkin SVT

I wandered over here from Focaljet(seems the two sites dont like eachother?), where I have cruised for a bit reading and learning, and since I just washed it today, I figured it would be a good time to show it off.

Its an 04 Comp O SVT ZX5 and I quiet enjoy it!

Haven't modded it much. Im trying to avoid getting carried away because it's my Daily Driver now.

Its got an AEM cold air intake, MBRP Exhaust (I love the sound of these two combined), CFM 67mm TB, and Yellow Suspension with H&R sport springs w/ Eibach 25mm rear strut bar, some slotted/drilled rotors(don't know they brand...they were on the car when I bought it) and a tune. Outside of that, its stock and I will try to keep it that way.

Visually, I have an RS rep spoiler and some plastidip black strips. I 'm 50/50 on the strips, but they come off real easy, if I decide against them.

Well, here you go:














I am considering getting one of these hoods as well, however, I am torn between which one as well as whether to get it painted to match the orange, (with or without the current fender strips), or get the center painted black and the sides black (again, with or without the fender stripes).

Hood 1: I figure this one because its an SVT and this hood is a SVT (cobra) replica.


Hood 2: Its a clean vented look similar to hood 1. Kind of hard to see though. I don't even know if its available anywhere...probably used.


thoughts? All comments welcome.

And yes, I know the fender strips arent popular.

Its only some folks that squabble, not worth bringing it up either way. I post freely at both sites and have no issues with anyone, others do the same as well. Both sites can offer help/tips, might as well use them both as a resource.


Car looks nice, I'd vote for the first hood choice. Ive told myself if i ever got a carbon hood, id go for the paint matched just because i think it would be too drastic of a contrast. It could work with your black/orange theme though.

I love it! Would love a Comp O ZX5 one day. The stripes are kinda cool, just think it would be better without them, and with the spoiler being orange. And I think that second hood looks better. It just flows better than the other. Very sweet though!

I'm a fan of fender stripes personally, and I like how yours go onto the hood instead of stopping where the fender ends. I'd keep 'em if I were you.
Also, the first hood stands out more... if that's what you're going for. Have you thought about not painting the entire middle part of the hood black and just from the vent(s) back to the windshield? I'm pretty bad at describing things, but it would create kind of a "W" (with the first hood) or a "U" (with the second one) of orange with an insert of black? I hope this made even a bit of sense.
Regardless, you have one clean SVT and I know there area a million people out there who are super jealous! (I'm one for sure.)

^^This. That would make your car look sick.


Also, there is no reason to have any holes in your hood. I can understand going to a CF hood to lose some weight, but unless you have a topmount intercooler,there is no measurable benefit to having holes in the hood of your car. I would even venture so far to say that it can qualify as "rice"

I have to say Comp Orange is the best color to pull off black wheels.

I like it minus the fender stripes, but like said above get yourself a pair of svt skirts painted comp orange and your set.
I kind of like the black spoiler
