Great start! I thought the SVT was the only car to have the OEM sub? Did you do that too? You got a killer deal on the rack, looks awesome!!! You should def do wheels and a drop before anything else. That way you can see what will work better if you decide to change bumpers, also if you decide to do an SAP front, then you won't need a black grille since the SAP grille is integrated - just some things to think about. Also when you upgrade your audio, I would keep the SVT sub enclosure you have and mod it for a 10" sub to keep a OEM+ look. If you don't like it, you can always sell that enclosure, fanatics here love those!

Anyway to FF

Happy modding

EDIT: I also see that you want to keep your first post up to date, sorry after a few months you will no longer be able to edit it :( just a heads up before you find out the hard way
