SVT Rally Project

Hey y'all! Super excited to be here and say that I managed to find a well running (i'm told) 03 SVT that i'm getting for $500! Can't beat that.
I've been building cars since I was 16, but they've always been my DD as well so could never go too crazy. I had a previous rally build that I was doing with an Abarth 500. Had done a ton of work to it over the off season (got it up to 250hp + suspension work) and was really looking forward to the season to start when life happened and had to get a bigger vehicle for the kid to fit in the back. SO ended up selling it before even getting to race it a single time. Before that had a few track cars, a 3000GT VR4 and a G35.
Then came a mechanic buddy of mine who mentioned that he had an SVT sitting around that he hadn't done anything with in a few years. Asked him to check out the current condition and get back to me. He says the interior is trashed due to a leak in the sunroof but after putting a new battery in it runs great. Guess we'll find out exactly what shape it's in once I pick it up next week and can do a full inspection on it.

Super excited to have another project that's also not a DD. Gonna use this as a build thread so stay tuned if you are so inclined.

Will post initial pics next week after I tow it home.

There's a youtuber "Sarah -n- Tuned" who I've been following, she's also doing a rally SVT. She's gutted the interior and relocated the battery so far. It's one of a few cars she is currently working on, so not a ton of SVT updates but still interesting to me.

Yea, I ran across her yesterday. Whats funny is I used to follow her and then stopped for a while. Quite the coincidence that I pick one up about the same time she does haha. I've definitely subscribed to see what she comes up with

Went and picked her up yesterday. As promised runs and drives like a champ. Interior is 100% trashed, but that's ok. Now I just gotta finish this motor swap in my expedition so I can free up my shop and get started on the tear down.
