Picked up another 05 ZX3 w/MT last year. Its only an SE so I miss having a rear sway bar. Also no Sony stereo pkg, ABS or TC, but its a good DD. I might go for some mild mods on it next spring. SVT shock and spring kit, plus a 22mm eibach RSB I have laying around. I also have an extra set of my Mazda brake caliper conversion kits, so I'll replace the stock calipers then too. And I'll probably do my steering knuckle mod to quicken the steering ratio. Not so sure about making major engine mods, but I might take the trans out of the racecar with 4.06 gears and quaife and swap that in before I bother making engine mods. Maybe just my Thunder Throttle mod, stealth SRI and mild tune. If I can salvage my ported 2.3 head off the race engine, that might find its way onto the stock 2.0 block, if I'm willing to run a header and update the exhaust too....

Here's a photo of my current DD. The car was purchased with 15" wheels, these 16" wheels were from the racecar. Its great having 2 mostly identical cars when you have an accumulation of spare parts. When the alternator went bad on the new car, I had a replacement in stock and I just swapped it out when I came home....

I'm hoping this goes to a good home and someone that can finish the work I started to make this a reasonably competitive car in SCCA's super touring class.
