SVT suspension would make it more fun to drive as well. There's other options too, but they are more money. How much fun do you want to spend?

I second DirtyDave's suggestion on suspension mods! It really woke my car up and made it more fun to drive. I went with Eibach Sportline springs on KYB AGX shocks. That combo is a little more spendy than SVT suspension is. A really big handling upgrade for these cars are sway bars, especially if your car doesn't already have a rear sway bar! Another relatively basic mod that will make the car feel more responsive would be a short throw shifter. There are so many little things you can do to these cars to wake them up!
