Easy enough if you know what your doing. 2 1/2" lowering blocks or reset leafs and rolling on 18s look good.
As others have said air box, extractors, xr fuel reg, j3, 2 1/2" exhaust than later on Tickford head n cam and manual conversion.

Use an AU Fuel rail as you can still get 300kpa AU regs new from Ford and they are easier to get hold of 2nd hand if that is the way you want to go.
