Hum, I would run the hell out of the Zx3. Even supercharged the SVT isn't going to be FAST, so why spend the money? Get good MPG out of the ZX3 and cruise the SVT on the weekends, take it through some curves.

Umm you're from New York so the Turbo kit for the SVT is out of the question... theres that whole C.A.R.B. thing to get around.... but there are C.A.R.B. legal supercharger kits.. Procharger seems to be the flavor of choice; me personally I would sell the zx3 and supercharge the SVT and get a decent clutch/fw setup
