Hey thanks for the response and I'm open to any ideas. Like I said I'm new at the SVT, but want to do it right the first time. Not looking for a race car...lol plus my wife needs to be able to drive it. We just want to fix it up a little. The guy who's working on it is coming over tomorrow night to check the engine code and check the car out before it goes in so he knows what he's in for...HA!

Is the CFM FX250 noisy like the stock clutch?

I thought about lowering springs, but I'm open for ideas. Maybe the cat pipe and exhaust?

And I need to make sure it will still pass emissions here in Colorado.

Come hell or high water the wife and I are driving our Silver SVT out to FocusFest to show it off just for fun...lmao. Then we're going to go eat some killer BBQ for a few days and sight see because she said so.

Found these today for 250 bucks...lol.

None of the 5 have ever been curbed. Should look pretty sweet on the silver SVT or I may put them on my red one.

Great find. Wish I could be so lucky.

I need to find some wheels like that, preferably in white. With the 5 x 108 spacing of course.

Used SVT rims are a great deal when you find them, mine were put away for years when the orig. owner changed wheels 6 mo. after purchase. Sold them when he got the second set of aftermarket rims... I'm happy with them.

Pardon my n00bness, but I have a question about clutches.

Currently my red SVT's clutch is noisy when idling. Pretty sure it's an original stock clutch and I had read somewhere that the original clutch was discontinued and a new version replaced the "stock" clutch. Can't remember where I read it though.

Is the CFM FX250 noisy too?

Thinking the dual mass clutch is the quiet one?

Thanks in advance.
