Congrats on the car. There is a plethora of information on here. For power and suspension it comes down to budget and goals for the car. You can stay NA and do headers intake manifold off-road mid and tune. Adding boost can be done if you have the coin. Suspension is a must regardless whether just making it handle better or getting rid of the dreaded wheel hop and launch better.

An intake manifold won't net you nearly as much power as you think it would. And you'd have to be in the super high rpm range to see any gains anyways. Not worth it in my opinion. You want some quick power for a fraction of the cost of adding a turbo or a s/c you could always go the nitrous route.

Suspension will change up the feel of your car.

Without going too far out:
-Springs
-Shocks/Struts (I would spend the extra $200 for adjustables)
-nonadjustable Lower control arms
-Upper adjustable control arms
-Adjustable panhard bar
-Camber plates (I'm not running it but others need it. Two shops measured my front both at -1.9 and -1.8 so it's still on the far end of being in within spec)

A little more far out and a couple thousand more expensive:
-Watts link
-Coilovers

Power Mods:
-Boss Manifold
-Longtube headers
-cat delete pipes / high flow cats
-shorty x pipe if u go LT headers
-tune

You could go with a Cobra Jet Manifold but it'll require a few other parts that I'm not gonna sit here and spout out to you cuz I didn't do a CJ Manifold.

More power? Nitrous, supercharger, turbo kits.

Baby steps lol

My only suggestion on suspension is do it in stages. Make one change see how the car reacts. You might not need everything listed to get the car to handle how you want. Same with engine mods. Do lots of research and get a plan.
