Is teh sexyness! I have a MK1 of the same type and just recently purchased the resonator from FSWERKS, initially I bought the Race exhaust system and found it to be far to buzzy, and wondered what your take on the exhaust note was?

I am planning on getting the Eibach Sport lowering kit, swaybars and all, to drop mine 2". I think yours would look good with a drop as well.

Nice ride.

I got the stealth because I drive everyday and that drone can get to you on longer trips. Really its just a big resonator that takes it down a notch to where I don't notice when I'm cruising but I remember when I get back on it.

Nice ride.
I have no idea how I would live without the Stealth system. I guess Race would be okay pre-header but once I put that thing in, it is LOUD. I can easily wake the neighbors . Stealth pre-header was great IMO. Nice and quiet until you punch it.

Oh dang, I'm excited already. This is sitting on the SVT suspension?

I've just updated with some pictures. First is the leather off the door card peeling. I think it was from the heat as it has melted sunglasses and the GPS molding in my glove box before.



Now, I have posted in the Duratec forums but haven't had a specific answer. Maybe you guys have help me out. I had someone put in my header for me so I am unsure of where the O2 sensor harnesses should go. Right now, the wrong O2 sensor is connected to the header and I'm getting the Bank 1 Sensor 1 error.



The blue harness is not connected. Next to it on the right (farther away from the engine block) is a blackish/gray harness that is connected to the O2 sensor that is connected to the header.

Now here is my issue. The person that installed my header gave back the OEM manifold to me. However, I am not sure if he took out the sensors or not but he may have and switched them around. It would only make sense that the O2 sensor with the shorter wire should be pre-cat. Anyways, here is the picture:



So let me get this straight. In order to correct this CEL, I would need to get a O2 wire harness sensor extender (or make one) to extend the sensor with the BLUE harness and replace the sensor that is already in the header.

Thank you for your time and I appreciate you reading this extensive post.

Cant help you on the O2 sensor question. But your wheels are perfect! Nice mods so far.

Update:

Swapped to Ford Racing Tokico struts and springs with camber plates up front. Alignment slipped my mind and I blew out a front tire and almost blew out the other.

They don't make these BFGoodrich tires anymore I guess and I needed tires ASAP. I went with American Tire house brand Mayruns :(.

Next BIG update:

FSWerks Stage 2 Turbo kit
Garrett GT2871R
47lbs injectors
2.5" downpipe
Intercooler

Still need:
New tune
Wideband O2
One step colder spark plugs
Bigger brakes
New battery case (cracked)
Cosworth intake manifold

Ford Racing vs SVT? Any preference?
Did you make some drop?
