  1. #1

    Default My Project...Ford Probe GT

    ok guyīs, i thought it will be nice to present you my project with my Probe V6,,, this is the second one that i own, first one i bought it in 2009 and sell it a few month later, due to an asshole that hit me in a parking lot, and i had to sell it in spring of 2009, due to a very high cost of reparation... then in november 2009 i bought the second one... this is how i bought it from an old man... bone stock, 178.000km...





    the first thing i do to it, it was to paint the rims, in satin black...




    i also paint the calipers in red...



    then, someone in our europe probe club was seeling his custom exhaust setup, i had a chance to earn some extra cash due to extra working hours and bought this setup...





    the same month, november 2009 i also received my KSport Springs...




    i find an very goog offer on ebay and i also got them
    - 4 brake rotors drilled & slotted & ceramic brake pads...




    Springs 2010

    i also got an Cold Air Intake from ebay...




    then a month later, i earn some extra cash and decided to buy the much wanted USA Red tail lights ... ( in Europe we have that amber turn signalīs and only one reverse light ) soo when you see a probe with USA Red tails is like seeing the 8-th wonder of the world...:thup::salute:

    soo, shipping those tails in europe is a pain in the ass, the price was :hang:
    but here they are...




    another thing that i didnīt like to my probe, was the amber signals, soo, i bought a set of clear corners...





    i also want to get rid of my euro mirrors for a set of the GT USA ones, the ones that are not folding ...
    i always like this more than the other ones...
    ( someone in euro probe club made an accident, and it happed that this guy had the GT mirrors, and i got them from him for a pretty good deal, because he decided to part out his car )



    in the summer of 2010 i also got my Short Throw Shifter from ebay...




    i also paid for a stupid crap 23 Euro ( like 30 USD ), they were called Engine bay Aluminium :lol::badidea:, to figure it out when i meet my dad 1 week later that he could it made it for me free, he was laughing his ass out when heard that i paid 30 USD for that piece of aluminium... :P




    i also bought an Oil Filter...



    then, in the autumn of 2010 i bought my 6000K HID Bixenon...




    i decided to mount this together with a new set of headlights, soo i went for this ones...

    Crystal Clear Diamonds Headlights ( Black )




    i also ordered my small license plate, in Europe we have the large one...

    and along with my brother decided to set this things up...





    after this setup, i didnīt like the Sunlight effect of this HIDīs, since i want more blue, and decided to bought another set, this time 8000k BiXenon HIDīs...




    ...after a looong loong wait, in a cold morning, someone ring at my door : it was the mail man, with my Samco MotorSport Housing, thanks God :bow:

    they come from England straight from the factory after more than 2 months i order them...
    these suckers cost me arround 250$ :ftw:





    Spring of 2011

    i soo bad wanted to get the Mach 1 Lip, soo after i went through alot of webpages, i was at like, hell no, the shiiping to Europe is :badidea:... but, again, i work extra hours and decided to :chavez::ftw:

    soo, almost 110 USD and got this shipped straight to my door...




    i couldnīt resist and got a set of spark plugs NGK Iridium ones...



    my air housing, oil, gas etc was in bad condition, and decided to replace this ones too, got this set of silicone one, all the sizes...






    i decided to get also a Dash Gauge Bezel Aluminium...



    ... a new oil cap was also installed...




    ... browsing ebay , i find this set at a win price, soo i also decided to buy this...




    ... Hidraulic Belt Tensionier also...magnesium made, straight from Taiwan...




    ... also got this Hood Scoops, but i will modified them and install them when i will paint the car...




    and :ftw: i also got this...



    also in the springs of 2011, i install the exhuast setup, and along with the custom exhaust i decided to bought some headers and a nice High Flow cat Converter...




    then here comes the Cat Converter...





    ... hell no, i know you guys will laugh about this, but yes, i bought this China made coils... :lol:



    i broke them when i try to mount them :fail:
    ( this is an advice for all of you guyīs, donīt even try to get this China things even they are free, the biggest crap i have ever bought )...:huh:

    from the very first day when i bought the car, i want to add some wheel spacers...

    again, due to extra work hours, i was able to buy this setup...

    Hubcentric Wheel Spacers

    30mm rear & 25mm front





    ... i also got the well knowing Escort Mount... i donīt have pictures of this, but you guyīs know what iīm talking about...

    after the KSport Springs and Escort Mount this is how my ride stay on front...



    i was also decide for a set of gaskets...





    a new set of VMS Racing High Energy Wires 10.2mm Silicone ones also...




    after installing the GT mirrors, i broke the cristal, and then i found a brand new one on ebay England...




    ... i didnīt like too much the first CAI, to be honest all my engine bay was painted in blue, and the Silver CAI didnīt fitt to well, soo i was decided for a blue one...



    and also bought a new set of this




    ... and for some parts, maybe one day i will need this, i bought it from the same guy that i bought the GT Mirrors...



    also a new Strut bar was installed, but for some reason, my hood didnīt close well after installing this, and i decided to get it out...




    new Nokla Shift Knob...



    ... tinted cristal all arround, 70%, i got alot of tickets for this setup :slap:




    in the summer of 2012 i also replace the front bumper, the old ones was shoot... and i also got the USA Headlights Covers ( in Europe, we have the 2 pieces oneīs )




    then i decided to stance my ride soo much , that now, it rubs my fenders everywhere i go... decided to cut the KSport Springs in the rear 2 coils, and in the front 1 coil, soo my setup now is :

    Front : 1 coils cutt KSport Springs & Escort Mount
    Rear : 2 coils cutt Ksport Springs

    ( i eat pavement everyday )



    Engine Bay when i first bought it



    After Rebuild



    i also did a modification to my turn signalīs, and now i got them in orange, in Europe we have them different from the State, and i like the orange ones you guys have , i try to make them in orange, this is how it turnīs out, pretty good i think, i like them alot, cops look at them strange, cuz in Europe having orange lights is a lil bit strange... when they stopīs me, i told them :
    ,, This is how i bought the car, is this way cuz is an American Ride īīī... :lol:



    my car is not done, i have in my mind alot of things to do to it, but for now, it just sitt, because my economic situation is not that good, i also want to get another probe , but for daily driving, i would let it stock, only suspension and a lip maybe...

    thank you all for reading my project :P

    here is a video on how it sounds first night when i install the whole exhaust setup...these videos are from 2012, sience then, the car has been suffering some modifications...

    PS : remember to press HD Button

    Congratulation for the progress, you really went a long way with the car. I would suggest, however, to make a thread in the Builds section as I don't think too many people still check this section.

    Maintenance isn't interesting, all the other upgrades are.

    Love the look of it, engine bay and outside. Not to fond of the exhaust, to much imho.
