I have been wondering that myself. Besides the solid sway bars, improved rear sway mounting, and retuned shocks, I also understand that a running 2011 change added some stiffer bushings. All that should make a difference i would think.

The big 3 standard problems are:

Excessive Understeer
Rear "Step out"
Wheel hop

FE4 should help the first two at least. All three are fixable with the help of the vendors here.

Stock FE4 is good but not anything to sniff at. My upgrades so far would waste a stock 2012 FE4 equipped SS but still I am not satisfied. My car still felt flimsy and had tons of wheel hop when I first got it 2 months ago but now the rear wheel sticks to the road like glue and corners and transitions very very well. But I am still not done yet.
