Depends on how much you want to spend? I went all out and did the 3.8L conversion. As far as Adrian, I have his book, and he went with suspension, chip, and different sway bars than stock. But he didn't recommend 17" wheels, and there probably aren't many of us that don't have these, so one person's opinion. You would do better to look at what guys are doing now, as the components and choices are better than they were when Adrian posted here years ago. There are also guys more qualified and experienced with these cars that can help you get what you want. Check out threads by Steve Weiner, Bill Gregory, Geoffrey, Ninemeister, etc.

You already have a LWF by the way, no dual mass on 89's! I would change the clutch slave also as this becomes a problem and starts "sticking". I think RS spec alignment is what you are referring to, that would be good, as long as you expect accelerated tire wear.
