New SVT Owner

Just wanted to say Hi to everyone. I recently bought an 03 red SVT focus. I used to own a 02 ZX3 which i sold 2 years ago. Looking forward to modding the car.

Well first thing is I'm going to change the timing belt. As far as mods go the only performance mods I want to do are 67mm throttle body and a tune. Possibly an orp down the road. For the exterior I want a new grill(not sure what kind yet and would like to hear some suggestions ). Interior I plan on creating my own gauge cluster and changing and the interior lights to red.

I know all about the curves. The zx3 I used to have had eibach lowering springs and struts. One of the reasons i love these cars is the handling capabilities.

Throttle body and tune are a good choice. I say get a K&N drop-in filter as well. In the name of staying environmentally friendly, I recommend a hi flow cat . Get a Progress 25mm rear sway bar, Koni struts/shocks with Eibach springs, and your car will be a handling machine.

The car had a k&n when I bought it. Does anyone have any suggestions on a upper grill?
