Just got a FRPP 624 kit, what next?

Hello all, I've slowly been modding the car over the last 2 years. So far i have done the following:
Shocks/struts, C&C plates, springs (sport line), lca, uca, pan hand bar, SS brake lines, SS clutch line, dot 4 fluid, resonator deletes, gt500 AB, oil cooler, gt500 rear rotor upgrade (will install on next brake job), and bought the car with the Brembo brakes.
This week I just purchased the FRPP 624 SC'er (manual only) kit and am wondering a few things. First is, what else should I do for reliability as she is my DD. I am not chasing more power at this time so tune/intake/exhaust are not really consideration unless they help something in missing.
For example, I currently have 3.73's and know I should drop, but to what?
Please let know what I'm missing.

You will need a clutch soon after, stock clutch can handle the torque for a while, but your mileage may vary depending the age of your current clutch. As far as gearing, since you have a MT82 you will want to drop to 3.31.

So after driving it a bit gears and an upgraded clutch is on my short list. So, how hard are those in a garage? Can a shade tree hobbyist complete either job? So far I've done all suspension work (panhand bar, lca, uca, struts, shocks, springs, cam/cast plates), mgw shifter, x-pype/axle backs, and the kit that started this thread.

Thoughts?

Are your shocks/struts adjustable. ?
And why would you want to change from
3.73 gears..?
(Just curious. ...)

You would change from 3.73 gears because they are usually too much for boosted cars.

The 3.73's are/were great for NA but as so many before me have stated (and I found true) they are hard to control on a PD blower.
I am a firearms enthusiast and related throttle control to trigger control and thought "I'll just use self control and throttle control, it'll be fine". What I find is it's like having a two ounce trigger on a duty weapon that you are required to keep on target and "at the ready" while driving on a dirt road in Iraq all the while without firing. Accidental discharges would be next to impossible to negate.
Same thing here, even being conscious about it the tires spin too easy.
It's fun in fourth and fifth gears with surprising acceleration but even third spins. ..

It's all about traction and what your shift points are at. And what you use the car for. I had 4.10's with close to 800 ft-lbs and was manageable for what the car was intended to do.

Put 3.73's in the 14, ( stock was 3.31 ), greatly improved the driving experience.
Several owners on the SVTP site did 4.10's..

If you're referring to a shelby, they have much longer gears than an mt82 so the effect is much less drastic. 3.73s and 4.10s only make sense on a boosted coyote if you have a well sorted drag setup and are trying to dial in finishing in a certain gear

Different transmission with different gearing. It's not even remotely a fair comparison.

Yes a few Shelby owners put 4.10's in but we're talking 1% of the owners from that site.

Clutch in the garage... technically yes... have fun bench pressing the trans in and out tho or getting a jack under there with the car 2ft in the air on jackstands. Screw that. If you have lift access and know what you are doing its an afternoon job tho.

It's not that hard. Actually it easy.

I don't like doing transmissions in the garage... I'm spoiled and have lift access tho. I don't even rotate my tires with a floor jack anymore lol.
