Question of mods on my zx3

Well, i have an 01 zx3, and i have a cia, and i did the foglight mod and the shorty antenna chop. can anyone reccommend any cheap mods i can do to make daily driving and throttle response better?


i am planning on replacing the front bumper with an svt bumper cover(depending on the cost to buy one),

and that brings another question... i was in an accident about a month ago, and i dented the front right fender, and cracked the bumper cover(about an inch crack) i also need to get a new upper grille and right headlamp... my next door neighbor knows a guy who owns a body shop, and will most likely charge me for the materials to paint it, but WILL NOT charge me a labor charge or any other stupid charges that shops normally do....

my question to all of you, is how much do you think a body shop owner will pay for a 1.)svt front bumper cover, including foglights and lower grille 2.) a right panel for a zx3 3.) svt upper grille 4.) right headlamp

i am short on cash, and i need to know how much ballpark all of these parts will cost.

best place for svt fog lights will be, ebay. a new front bumper cover SVT Style will
set u back about 300 - 400 bucks. lights about 70 for the set, that should cover the cost
I could be mistaken though.

For better throttle response, you could -Port Your Stock Throttle Body-, or you could buy an aftermarket TB from New Edge Performance, McNew's Automotive, or any other dealer/company that you like.

Here are a few How-To's for the "free" modifications you can do and for some of the really -cheap- modifications that are available. Though most of these don't deal with performance, I think that they are worth doing because they are completely or relatively FREE

Turn Signal Silence Mod
Upper Grille Light Delete Mod
Yellow Foglight Mod
Cling-On Tint How-To
Deactivate/Activate The Seat Belt Minder
Debadging
Interior Paint Prep
Interior Painting
Painting Engine Bay Pieces
Exterior Trim Painting
Improving Chassis Ground
Cabin Air Filter

Complete List of How-To's

For the parts, I would contact the folks at SVT Salvage, or Focus Salvage. Both are great companies to deal with for new and used parts for a very nice price. I'm not sure how much they would charge for the pieces you are looking for, but you could ask them

Cheers!
