If its an SVT w/o all the options, I'd say go for it. Set up is a good question, especially the sway bar. It may come down to testing to figure out the best configuration. Course dependency may have a say in this too.

In my focus with street tires, I would run 5psi higher in the front. With Rcomps, I am usually 2psi or less higher in the front.

When you buy tires, take a close look at gearing. General comments on the SVT is that it is geared tall, so a small tire with a bit of stretch may be the way to go. Again course dependancy here.

I think that an SVT with good dampers in H stock would be a blast to drive, makes me kind of want to go look for one.
