I'm not too familiar with the 2.3 but I do own an SVT and I only see one small problem with this... SVT's were 6 speed only. I think what you might have is a ZX3. Also, Sage green was not an SVT color, not to say you cant get an SVT repainted though. Anyways, Welcome and I hope you find a fix to your problem!
