03SCSVT's Build Thread FF13

I drive a 2003 Screaming Yellow SVT 3 door with just a few bolt ons. As some of you might know, I bought the car back around August of 2011. I got it with the supercharger already on it and the majority of the mods done for me. I drove it for about 5 months and 8,000 miles and blew the engine At first I didn't know what happened because I didn't know too much about mechanics and especially my SVT at that time. I later found out I had melted 2 pistons because the tune that was on my car when I bought it was crap. I took it to a few shops before I found one that would actually work on it. It went to Topspeed out in eastern NC. That's where it spend about a half year or so getting a new engine with a few forged parts. Currently it resides in my garage and gets taken out on the nice weekends but may sometime before FF'13 be a daily again, at least for a little bit.

Engine Mods:
  • Jackson Racing Supercharger on 12 lbs
  • Forged Pistons & Rods
  • Cold Air Intake
  • Custom Tune from Topspeed
  • Borla Catback

Interior Mods:
  • Short Throw Shifter (Brand Unknown)
  • A-Pillar 3 Pod Gauge Cluster
  • Autometer Boost/Vacuum Gauge
  • 2 Broken Guages (Narrow Band & Digital RPM + Shift Light) - Will be replaced before FF
  • Rear Sway Bar

Exterior Mods:
  • HID Foglights
  • H&R Coils
  • Modded Headlight Switch - Ability to turn on fogs without headlights
  • 35% Window Tint
  • 5% Strip on Windshield

To Do Before FF'13:
  • Replace Shattered Driver's Side Fog
  • Aeroforce Guage
  • True Wideband Gauge
  • Clean up the Engine Bay Wiring
  • Replace Battery Box
  • Test Pipe
  • Replace the Windshield Tint Strip

I'm sure that I have a lot more to do that I can't remember but I will continue to update this once stuff gets done. Pictures will come!

I forget which kind off the top of my head. I can look on the receipts and check later this week. And im 99% sure I have ARP head studs. I let Topspeed build the motor, I didnt do the work myself on the engine because I dont have a garage or frankly the knowledge to do a full engine rebuild. They did a quality job and its holding up pretty good so far.


Ill have pics posted soon enough. I want to take fresh pictures for this and I am currently at college and the car is in my parents garage. By this weekend I hope to have pics up
