Don't forget better suspension for handling.

If you have a ZX3 and want to beat a stock SVTF in the 1/4 mile, I think Solaris or someone on this forum said that they beat them all the time and all they have on their ZX3 is:
FR Header
RT Hi-flow Cat
Flexpipe
Magnaflow catback exhaust
Volant intake
65mm TB

And...some other differences:
Dash trim and climate control knobs.
Gauge faces, added oil pressure and oil temp gauges, and different speedo and tach.
Door trim inserts.
Racing pedals.

Don't forget the SVT scuff plates, extra power port in the console...and lack of an armrest. ;-)

SVT also has rear seat headrests (three of them), HID's, perforated leather steering wheel, and a cargo net.

I think that's everything.
