Specs:

2003 ZX3 SVT with 25k miles
Garrett T3 60 trim
Greddy FMIC
Greddy Type RS BOV
Tial F38 Wastegate

I did all of the fabrication on the piping and also did the entire install.

Sorry, no numbers yet... No tune=No drive=No numbers. Awaiting anxiously to get her going though. I was doing 200+ with a Zex kit prior to this.

As for the gauges, just wanted to be different. Uh, I mean fit in, Wait, no, I mean different. [paranoid]

Thanks for the compliment on the exhaust. A side exhaust is in the works. I'm gonna go for the Roush look like this:

nice. that exhaust will be hot. really hot on a foci. i kinda wanted to make an exhaust like that. but a 2.5inch rounded slash cut so it came out of the side of the car even.

turbo is sick also. and those battery cables are monsterous. my cables just hung themselves out to dry.

Very nice looking, great job on both the motor and the exterior. The only thing that doesn't agree with me is the center exit exhaust. Don't take me wrong, I like the idea of a center exit exhaust, but I would change the tip. Eiher get the Borla style tip that they make for the center exit, or if it was me, I would do a "custom" double tip kind of like a Mini Cooper S's exhaust. The single round tip that you have now just looks off.

I agree that it looks off. I had a larger single resonator/tip that sounded like poo and it got tossed then I went with a dual setup that didn't really sound right either. The current one makes the exhaust sound just like I want it too, but I'm not crazy about the way it looks.

Anyway, That tip's days are numbered (specifically it's hours are numbered). I just made the first cut for the side exhaust on the driver's side. I would finish it tonight, but I can't get the tip I want (no 24hr exhaust shop), and besides, my wife just got home and laid down the law and told me I had to quit for the night. I'll post pics tomorrow when I get it finished.

Just make one for your 05. That's what I did. They make one for my 03 but it's rediculously expensive.
