New to the Club! Recently bought an '04 ZX5 SVT

Hi folks!

I just sold my '98 ZX2 to buy this '04 SVT. I'm feeling better about the decision every day. I'd owned the ZX2 for about four years prior, it had been my trusty steed all the way through.

Hopefully this SVTF will be just as reliable, but with twice the fun.

It's got 164,000 miles, just turned over when I drove it home. T-stat housing has been upgraded already, PO didn't trim their hose clamps unfortunately. They said the t/b was replaced at around 100,000 so I'll likely be due for one real soon. I've not dove much into maintenance yet because they PO took pretty good care of the vehicle before I snagged it, mostly suspension components and brakes (at least, that's what they have receipts for.) The car is a salvage title due to 'unknown' - I've checked the VIN and it was scrapped for some reason then salvaged. More than likely a front end collision as lots of the plastic up front is misaligned along with the driver's side fender. It drives straight and quiet so i'm not worried about it.

Recently had the wires going into the ignition coil rot away on me! They broke right at the plug. Had to leave the car parked at the O'Reilly's in town while they got the new connector in. Replaced that with butt connectors and shrink wrap for now, I'll solder the wires when it gets warmer out.

Welcome to the SVTf family! I, unfortunately, just sold mine in Jan. Still miss it, but I did get a 2017 ST to replace it!
