    I would talk to LLoyd elliot or Advanced induction and look at doing a top end kit and freshen up the bottom end. They can put together something that is emissions legal if need be and it will be a screamer then. Depending on the millage that would be my plan. spend about 5k on getting the bottom end right and getting a set of worked heads and a custom grind cam In the mean time do a couple of bolt ons like shorty headers, Cold Air Intake, Cat back. I would then look at a clutch to go with what ever engine setup and a rear and go to town.

    How far do you want to go with it?

    I started with a short throw shifter, headers, and gears. All of these were easy, fairly inexpensive, and did not harm normal driving.

    As I began racing more at the drag strip, I dropped down to 15" rims and special purpose tires. I also began changing clutches (Centerforce had some issues a few years back).

    I ended up moving the battery to the trunk, installing a six point roll bar, racing seats, dumping the six speed for a built 700R4 transmission with reverse throw manual valve body, a 383 stroker bottom end from Beck's Racing in AZ, and new heads from CNC Inc. All the "little stuff" was also upgraded as well as moving to Hooker long tubes, a 12 bolt from Moser Engineering, and various programming changes.

    Every time I broke something I upgraded it. The little stuff adds up... 5-point harnesses, driveshaft loops, tranny blankets and coolers, aluminum driveshaft, shocks, springs, airbags... You can go as far as you want to go but a cold air intake, headers, shifter, clutch, torque converter, gearing, are all very streetable.
