Ok, I dont have pics of when I first got the car but I do have a few early ones when I had just gotten my emblem overlays, hatch trim overlay and third brake overlay. I also tinted the front parking lights and and painted my calipers red. This is also the same time that I installed the eibach sportlines with 2" drop and my AEM CAI...





They are hard to see but I got some red "spline type" lug nuts to match the calipers, also got red valve caps...





I also wraped my header, I only bought 1 roll of wrap which cost $50 BTW, it was only enough to do each tube 1/4 of the way down but it was enough to protect the fans and fan shroud/wires from the heat. Looks much better with the heat shield deleated and the header wraped...



Then I decided to paint my lip spoiler red... That lasted a few months then I just got myself a mach 1 lip which looks much better IMO.





Mach 1 lip...





This is just the start of it all, lol... There is a lot more stuff to add but I gotta get ready for work so I will pick up where I left off as soon as I can, prob tomorrow. Its gonna take me forever to get all the mods I have done posted on here... Oh well, now I can just keep you all in suspense until the next post haha.

Dude that car is sweet! Nice job man. Mine is bone stock right now, but can't wait to tweak on it and freshen up the paint. Not one bolt has been touched as far as I can see under the hood of mine.

Here's a pic.

Thanks man! That is one spotless engine you got there! Deff looks bone stock to me too... One thing I would suggest is doin a wire tuck to clean it up even more, get those darn throttle cables outta the way and off your valve cover. I routed mine behind the engine.

Parts list...

So when I got the car it already had some nice mods on it and that is one of the main reasons why I decided to get this SVT. I saved a bunch of $ because I would have just bought the same mods anyways. So let me list some of the mods that were on the car and then we can get back to the build list.

First off it had Magnaflow cat-back exhaust, C-F-M dog bone rear engine mount, C-F-M adjustable STS with Steeda knob, yellow laminx fog light covers, tinted windows all the way around, drop in K&N filter and Continental DWS tires. I do not concider this heavily moded and that is one thing I did not want because chances are if its modded heavily its been abused... It was just the right amount that I was looking for.

*EDIT* - Added some pics...











Ok, now that that list of parts is done we can get back to the build...

The next thing to do was the tint the rear tail lights, some people dont like the look but to me it looks great and makes the rear flow great paired with the tinted windows, also added a cobra SVT badge...





Next I decided to put in some toggle switches and do a traction control kill switch and install some red led footwell lighting. I put 2 led strips on each side in both the front footwells (4 total in front) and one strip under each seat to light up the rear footwells (2 total in the rear) so 6 strips in all...
