Why are you having to do a rebuild ?

Things that help the SVT

This guy knows his stuff! He tuned mine back in the day and really livened it up!

Good information ukfan50. Fortunately I am a diagnostic technician at a Ford dealership, so I have access to a machine shop and other resources for parts. I would end up spending just as much on a used unit versus rebuilding mine and knowing exactly what's going on/in it. I'm not trying to rush this project, but I would like have a sense of urgency with it. Speaking of transmissions, who has a street lightened flywheel and clutch combination? How does it compare to the stock unit as far as comfort and driveability is concerned?

I have the engine out of the car and I am looking it over, preparing for the machine shop. When the engine goes back together, are there any components that I should go ahead and replace? Such as the oil pump, etc.?

By the way, why should I go with a 3in. exhaust? I would figure that to be too big unless I were boosted.
