basics, 2.5 inch exhaust, lowered springs(dont chop the original ones with a grinder), k&n panel filter,nice rims, depends wat you want looks or power , and how much is your wallet going to be able to handle

First off, welcome to the forum.
Yes swapping to a manual would be a worthwhile conversion. It is quite involved (however many members have done this, so here's a great place for advice etc) If you look at the top of the page , under the banner you will see a bar with 'Home / Forums / Gallery / etc' click on and use the 'Search' function and do a search for 'Swapping auto for manual' or something like that and you'll soon find what you are looking for. And ask questions.

Put BIGGER and BETTER brakes on it, the fronts from a BA/BF will be a good thing and also change the rears. I would definitely be doing that before making it GO faster. :)
