ZX3 v ZTW

Hello,
I am thinking of purchasing a good used 2002 Focus (Manual Trans. ), are the parts any different for a ZX3 or a ZTW? Both cars seem to have the same specs for wheel base and length. Also, if I put on a new intake and flowmaster (or simular) exhaust would this zip up the car, or would I just be making more noise.

the zx3 is shorter length, and i would advise getting the hatch because its a little lighter and its 2 doors and looks cool (IMO). an intake and exhaust would do some for speed, but dont go try to race corvettes are mustang GT's and expect to win though.

I have a ztw. Most of the parts are the same, the engines are exactly the same, the only parts that are really dif, are the ones that involve length, such as the exhaust, and the rear shocks

There isn't nothing wrong with a ZTW.

Have you looked around on the net? I've seen some pretty nice looking ones.

If you don't need the extra room, get the Zx3.
Otherwise, get the ZTW.
