You can only pull wide off if you do it right. Hence wheels and all.

buy a spare motor and tear it down and build it back up so that when you do eventually have the money to turbo it there are no worries.

obviously i'm more into the speed of a car than the looks of it...

you need to figure out what suits you best.

most of us here will agree that your car already looks very good. sure new paint might be in order but overall it would be a shame to molest the already nice looks of the svt with some cheap (probably fiberglass) bodykit.

Keep in mind widebody will require new wheels too unless you want to look like a noob. There's so much work to be done getting those things to fit right and actually come out looking quality. I'd pass on it.

3000 isnt enough to build a turbo. Your car is Pretty Much built isnt it? I would probably throw it in a CD and wait till you have enough to do the whole turbo Build.

I would take some of the money and throw on larger Front and Rear sway bars and stressbars. What Kinda Dampers do you have? If they are just the SVTs then I would also get aftermarket

As far as i remember, the motor is stock. nothing internal done to it.

Just do the turbo then. NO to the wide body kit.

because with that money you could build up a pretty decent low compression motor which would be great for a boosted application like you want... however, low compression with no boost will be much slower than it is now. you could have the spare motor ready for when you can afford the turbo stuff.

I wish I knew you all when I had my SVTF. I had an extra SVT zetec sitting in my garage. All it needed was one valve. I sold the pistons, rods, and gave the head to a guy off here....and tossed the rest in the trash. I actually had the head in the trash and went and got it back out to ship to the guy. I just got tired of it sitting in my garage...sat there for about a year and a half doing nothing but getting in my way. Should have kept it....oh well.
