So I bought a 2003 svt from a friend, he only has only owned it since last june. Without knowing what's all been done to it, knowing I need to get some work done before the drive to focus fest in August. So she has 150xxx on it so here's my plans and I'm looking for input.

Full timing job
tune up; new coil, wires, maf, larger thottle body, plugs.

Upgrading brakes

Coil overs

Removing the short ram and installing a full AEM CAI.

Upgrading my sway bars and bushing, affing an upper front strut brace.

New shift boot old one got ripped, triax short throw.

There is a custom exhaust though I'm planning on adding a decent header set up.

Once done getting the sCT tuner and getting a custom tune.

Any thoughts from you svt owners that have been messing with this for a while?

do a compression test! timing belt/water pump/ tensioner/ idler pulley/ serpentine belt/ fuel pump/fuel filter/cabin filter/ air filter/ driveshaft boots/ axle seals/
at your mileage these needs attention right away. If maintained right its a reliable and fun dd.

I've got this stupid long list. On one side it's typical stuff, that I'd do on any car. On the other side I'm doing performance side stuff
