2004 Boxster S Special Edition uniqueness

Hi all-
I am new here, and have a couple of threads going already.
What makes the 2004 S special edition special other than what the manual claims.
Anything unusual ?
The engine has some kind of special tune, but nothing is documented.
My car had a badge that says #303

There's a few posts on this sort of thing. Most of the stuff is from the catalogue of 986 or was later on the 987. One of the things that isn't is the GT silver is unique on 986 and the steering wheel is pinched from the Carrera GT.

Thanks
With regards to the 7 HP increase over normal S models, how exactly was that done ?

987 airbox, slightly different induction pipe and a different map.

I have the gearbox out, exhaust out, and cams locked (see other threads)
Any gotcha issues I need to consider with this 1-off model ?

Mechanically it's practically identical so there's nothing particularly special to look out for.
