Make sure you keep your eye out for the upper intake manifold. Watch your coolant levels as you near 80 000 miles or so. Get a 180T-stat and a tranny cooler to furthur insure the vehicle.

Any intake and exhaust is a good place to start on a normally aspirated engine. Then look into higher end plugs/wires. From there the sky is the limit

Check with a few of the vendor'* here. Ty(speedyguy) or Al(DeathRat), they can probably get whatever your heart desires....for a price.
