As you can see, not too much action here these days.
I'm still dailying my 2000 bone stock SVTC, just passed 160k. I came close to selling it to my son for his first car but bought him a 2003 SVT Focus instead. My problem was that I couldn't decide what to buy to replace my SVTC! My car is running well - had the drivetrain out at 130k to have Terry Haines (RIP) replace the busted diff. That's really the only major issue my car has had since buying it 10+ years ago at 80k mi. Replaced all hoses, clutch, water pump etc while engine was out.
My only real beef with the car is that I'm afraid to rev it like crazy for extended periods for fear of con rod bearing failure. But it's a street car, I have two race cars and an AX car so why do I need to flog it all that hard. If I really cared all that much I'd put forged rods in it. I do love the exhaust note at WOT and 4k+ RPMs!
