Shifting feels much lighter, easier to engage any gear going up or down, no artificially stiff sensation. Very subtle difference, but nice.

it wasn't so subtle for me. however i forgot that i did it because i installed my 180 degree thermostat and CFM 67mm TB afterwards so without thinking i started the car and put it in reverse and i was like holy shit! and started going through the gears. unbelievable difference for me. that was this past weekend and i'm still trying to get used to it, that and the TB

this has been discussed many many many times already. the non-svt has a weight but you have to drill out the rivot in order to remove it
