A build thread, all my own*update* now with full stereo system

I'll just start off with the run down of whats going to be going on, this will go pretty slow until things actually start to happen.

so as far as the break down of my car goes.

2003 SVT EAP in screaming yellow that was purchased a little over 2 years ago.
When I got it, It came equipped

ebiach sportline pluss kit
VF mounts
CFM 67MM TB
redline hood struts
borla exhaust
STS
torrsen T2
euro grill
invader CF hood
and windows where tinted





so over the past 2 years I've added some small things here and there, the major thing I wanted to do was install a turbo kit of which I have acquired last year and I have been saving up for some extra odds and ends and now that my tax money has come in It's time to move forward with those plans

so far what I have done to the car since I first came into possession of the car

double DIN pioneer HU
Infinity door speakers
custom sub enclosure with a kicker comp C10 sub
cut the STS even shorter
MOMO shift knob
Euro HVAC gauges
Kona roof rack
plasti dipped the stock rims
TFB ford emblem overlays black over yellow
MSD coil pack
Massive speed systems wires
Optima yellow top battery
"blown out" KYB AGX struts
and some stickers :P

whats still to come:

XIOS turbo kit
euro tail lights
custom kicker L7 sub enclosure and subs ( I have 2 12''s )
adjustable front endlinks
SS brake lines
some kind of new suspension I'm thinking coilovers
tune for my xcal 2 and car

how the car sits now in no random order

































as the car sits today

This looks really nice. I really like the CF hood on that, too. It looks like you worked your butt off on that. Nice ST, too. Haha.

little bit of an update, I've got a new coolant tank reservoir ordered, and I should have my hands on a J&S safe guard by the end of the week along with an AEM wideband(hopefully)

all that I will need after that is a new 180 deg Tstat and housing since mine is leaking, and then my tune and things should be underway from there

Wow, amazing to see this thing after so many years removed...Had to laugh when I seen the ST in the one picture...thats what I DD now! Its awesome!

I hope you have better luck with the turbo then I did. Im a little curious why you went with the Xios, vs any of the others...I know everyone has their preference...I liked the SPA manifold just bc it was cast and would not crap like the welded ones do over time. But anyway, looks like you are coming along. I have been down that same road collecting parts for that same car. I have a picture of my living room floor with everything on it. I have to note the hooters girls was a nice touch and made me proud! Good to see someone still taking care of the car. I know I tried to take care of it, aside from blowing a few engines.

This is the oldest picture I think I have of the car. Probably had right around 20k miles on it which is right about the time I bought it. Before I did much to it, if anything it may of had an intake on it at this point.

Then I went to this...


And then this is what happens...


I still have this..will sell to the highest bidder...the original #2 piston for this car.


And what is sad is I dont have any pictures from the last 6 months I owned it, when I had Tom put the SPA manifold and the 3" downpipe with V-band flange on it....I thought I had pictures.
wait here is one!



Well Good luck and I will be watching this thread as you progress.!!!
