I know that the SVT is rear disc, but is there any differences with the front calipers? SVT bigger? Performance?

SVT rotors are bigger than regular ZX3. Calipers are SVT specific too.

SVT is 4 wheel disc brakes, the non-SVT is 2 wheel disc brakes (smaller than the SVT ONES) and 2 drum brakes.

Some non-svt cars came with rear disc too. Smaller rotors than SVT though

Almost all correct information provided, good responses.
On My 2002 ZX5 I have retrofitted complete SVT suspension and brakes - very straightforward to do If you can find the used SVT parts. Some are no longer available except as used surplus, for example the rear axles with the "ears" on the flange for mounting the calipers, also front knuckles. Junk yards and Rock Auto are your friends.
Good luck,
Monoblanco

i had forgot about those ST's that were 4 wheel disc brakes but agreed that they were smaller than the SVT's.

I have a friend with a 2001 ZX3 with Traction Control. It has rear discs (original equipment I assume, but he bought it used, so not sure) but with smaller discs than on my ZX5 with the full SVT retrofit. Just mentioned as another possible source for rear disc assemblies.
Again, good luck,
Monoblanco
