An SVT ZX3 means it is an SVT that has two doors and a hatch. A regular ZX3 is a regular ZX3 with 2 doors and a hatch. So the interior is different, suspension is different, engine is different, lots of things are different.

plus there was a Zx5 SVT....which would be the best of both worlds....

put it this way the SVT is .75" closer to the ground than a regular Zx3.....

alot of racing inspired technology went into a SVT......

more hp, better suspension, better interior, 4-disc brakes......etc

a SVT owner will chime in

- VVT
- dual stage intake
- 4-wheel disk brakes
- improved exhaust
- stiffer, lower suspension
- 6 spd gearbox
- improved interior and exterior appearance such as color-coordinated seats, wheels, front fascia

It all depends on the part. Most suspension and exterior parts work, along with interior parts. But it mainly depends on what it is.
