Just go to the link i gave and read up.......i am assuming many of the same features will be on the SVT version..........other than that the flash is suppose to smooth out all of the flaws that the SVT is famous for........

Yes, the only way to change the program on the svt pcm is by a "reflash". You either have to meet SCT at a dyno, or take out your pcm and mail it to them. Also, Tom from focus-power.com has the new diablo hand held flash unit ready to ship now. That unit you buy and you can download tunes from email off your computer and then upload them to your car. Contact Tom using that website I provided.

The stage 3 is pretty cool. Its a 6 puck design. I also did the lighweight option on it. Spec is very cool bunch of guys too. Happy to help you with any questions. I may be able to get you the clutch for cheaper if you want to get hooked up with my guy, im me.
Stage 3 is somewhat of a hassle for day to day driving, but the performance it gives at the track is well worth it. I mean day to day driving doesnt bother me at all, but for some who like a relaxed easy daily drive, this is not the clutch for you. It is grabby, and takes some getting use to. But, they back their clutches 100% and I would not change a thing if I coudl go back.
The only clutches I would ever get for the SVT is the Clutch Masters Stage 4 and the clutch I have. Ive heard about too many other problems with all the other ones out there.
