Serious question, handling or power?

I know that the v6's aren't the biggest power houses, so I was thinking about all the money I spend on a little v6, going into handling for like IRS and new struts, springs, coils, rotors, etc. What are your ideason it? Power or Handling?

Some will say power but it takes quite a bit of $ to pack some power into a sixxer. Personally I'd start with handling. Stiffer springs, shocks & struts. Then off to caster camber plates, rims/tires an such. As far as IRS, that's a pricy project, and there's nothing like a solid axle

Make it handle, anybody can go in a straight line, takes skill to carve the corners. One skill im so looking foward to learning. IRS :RTW:
