well, it could go either way, do you want power, or do you want looks? or a combination of both? its not really something that someone else can answer, but a nice balance of power and looks is always a plus

performance wise you dont have much that will give you any gains without spending a ton. After being in your shoes in two previous cars I would personally stop on performance until i wanted to build the motor. If its an auto a nice tune will help a good bit or rear end gears... thats about it.

Lower the car with some nice wheels and it will make all the difference.

an after market shifter goes FAR to the enjoyment of the car, get an MGW shifter and it makes a huge difference.

Splitport swap and Windstar will give some gains. Some modification is needed. I think the windstar intake looks good too
